"A leafy suburb close to everything"

Most people are attracted to live in Ormiston because it ticks most boxes on their wishlist.

You have good access to cafes and take away shops.
Train takes you into the city and the leafy neighbourhood offers you peace and tranquility to unwind from a busy week.

In addition, the popular highly ranked private school Ormiston College definitely appeals to family with school age children.

"Beautiful suburb"

We looked at our house to buy in January when all the Poinciana trees are in flower that line Wellington Street. I think this was the reason that won me over.
Ormiston is close to everything. The shops in Cleveland are not that far and it's nice that they are aren't actually in the suburb. Kayaking spots to set out with short distance. Quiet and safe. We are glad that we moved here.
Yes the CBD is not close, but Ormiston station takes you right there. There is also a bus that goes to the city too, but takes longer than the train.

"Very nice area, but far from the city."

Ormiston is very quiet and leafy, but still close to the bay. It has a train station so you can train it to the CBD as a young professional. I like the area :)

"The gem of the Redlands!"

Driving down Wellington St is like driving down an avenue of beautiful trees.
There are still koalas in the area, and the bird life is fantastic.
It is a sought after place to live, and is affectionately called "The Shire" due to it's relaxed country feel.
The heritage listed Ormiston House is at the end of Wellington Street, very popular with vintage and classic car clubs.
A unique area!

"Hidden Gem"

Ormiston is great. It's such a small suburb that it can be easy to miss. Has a good neighbourly and community feel and only a few minutes drive to the center of Cleveland which has a Woolworths and Coles and numerous eateries. Capalaba is also only a 5-10 minute drive away. The train station is very central and within walking distance from most parts of the suburb. Has a couple of small local shopping complexs and a primary school and private High School.

Driving into the city during peak times can be a nightmare though, especially along Finucane Road.

"So quiet, you can hear a pin drop"

This is a bit of old charm with established homes and many new and modern ones, amongst beautiful flora and fauna, chosen for the safety and peaceful minded neighbors, who are very considerate of others. The atmosphere is of well educated and cultural professionals (and some retirees), who enjoy the outdoors with their children. It is a happy environment and walking to the shops, schools (private and state), and train station is a must to make the best of it.
