"Love Oakey!!"

I have lived in Oakey my whole life of 22 years & I don't want to live anywhere else. I enjoy travelling in Australia and overseas, but I love coming home to what I know to be the best place to live!!

"Great little town with big heart!!"

Oakey is a great small town with everything you need - great Supa IGA supermarket, Foodworks, Fuel, Post, Restaurants, Cafes, Newsagent, Hairdressers, Primary and High Schools, Parks and friendly locals.
For anything that isn't available in Oakey, Toowoomba is a short 20 minute drive away!
Great lifestyle for singles, families, retirees.

horseman Your comments sound more like a local real estate agent and no town is suited for every type of person. Upon visiting this town I found no transport available eg: buses or trains, over $50 for a cab fare to Toowoomba, so I imagine that to live in this town you would have to own a car or have access to one.So, if you would be elderley I can not imagine living in this town unless you had imediate family. This is why after consideration Toowoomba was a much better option for value for money when it came to facilities.
