"A small town - all grown up ."

We moved here from Sydney 10 years ago and couldn't be happier. It's like living in paradise. We've got a water view from our unit - such affordable luxury would be out of our price range anywhere else.

Redcliffe has a vibrant history, and the main street (Redcliffe Parade) still has an old-world feel to it. The waterfront has been completely renovated in the last couple of years, and it is fantastic. Beautiful large art works , a wonderful war memorial, heaps of good seating along the water. The Settlement Lagoon area is a wonderful place for families - a huge swimming area like an upmarket resort, with a big play park adjacent. A great place for a day out. On Sundays the whole waterfront area is alive with the Waterfront Market - great food stalls, buskers, art and craft for sale.

Half-way along the waterfront is Bee Gee's Place, a street dedicated to the famous group who spent their childhood in Redcliffe. Barry Gibb designed the area, which has a huge long wall of Bee Gee's photographs and stories written by him. At the waterfront end of the walkway is a life-sized statue of the boys as children - this area is a big drawcard for Bee Gee's fans from all over the world. Barry came to open it in February 2013 and it always has a crowd of people walking along reading the stories.

For eating out, Redcliffe has a huge range of eateries. Sidewalk cafes are everywhere along the waterfront, with regular ones like Coffee Club and Banjo's, as well as many local ones. For fine dining you can't go past Mon Komo or The Golden Ox ( which recently won "best fine dining in North Brisbane".) The usual clubs are well represented - RSL, The Dolphins Football club, the Redcliffe Golf Club. On the Scarborough end of the Peninsula there is Morgan's classic seafood restaurant - best fish and chips ever.

Local shopping isn't great - but a short drive to Kippa Ring gives a good shopping experience, and a little further along is North Lakes , with Myer, DJ's, Target, Bunnings.

Redcliffe is very safe area to live - just the usual small-time crime levels. The local kids sometimes hoon up and down Anzac Avenue on a Saturday night, but the police keep them in check and I've never heard of anything untoward happening. There is a good skateboard park in Oxley Avenue which attracts a lot of kids but I've never heard of any trouble there. You can go for a walk in the evening, along Humpybong Creek or the waterfront, and never have to worry about your safety. I'd highly recommend this area for families or retired people.
Pros

  • Safe area to live.
  • Affordable water side and just 30km from Brisbane
  • lagoon pools, dolphins club etc etc.. gret quiet spot
  • seaside community , boating, sea breezes, restaurants, parklands, hospital
Cons

"Beach so close to the city!"

Lovely spot to live - beaches all around, great for swimming, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding. Lots of trendy little cafes now along the redcliffe peninsula, always see people exercising along the waterfront. Traffic isn't bad unless it's peak hour getting off the deagon deviation.

"Redcliffe a hidden piece of paradise"

Redcliffe is a lovely seaside town....But not a sleepy one. It has low crime,good employment prospects and great schools. The hospital and medical facilities are A1. Plenty for the kids to do. Movies, shopping, bowling etc.. There is a wonderfully innocent community spirit....Rental is moderate and good value for the lifestyle....I loved living here :)

"Redcliffe is Unique!"

In 2005 I developed the RedcliffeCityNews.com.au following the demise of the Peninsula Post. Being involved in the community I can honestly say thatRedcliffe is unique - it has a personality of its own. A high number of Olympians have come from the area, there are beautiful parks, state level sporting facilities, theatres, culutral centre, art galleries, excellent private and public schools, clubs, waterfront, harbour and so much more. It was the first settlement in Queensland and more recently is the home of Bee Gees Way.

KarenH4 Hi there. I know this is quite an old post now but I wondered if you could tell me anything you know please about the state schools on the Redcliffe peninsula and if you have any experience of any of them? Thanks so much in advance

Lynda and Mel Hi Karen
There are 5 State Primary Schools in Redcliffe:
Humpybong, Clontarf Beach, Scarborough, Hercules Road and Kippa-Ring and also Woody Point Special School.
Then there is Redcliffe State High, Clontarf Beach State High and Redcliffe Special School.
The factual details of each school can be found on the Qld Education website.
As a journalist I had a lot to do with each of the schools and the status and popularity of a school has a lot to do with who is at the helm, namely the principal as well as the participation of the P & C.
And as a parent, my oldest son went to Humpybong Infants School which at the time was under principal Peter Storch, one of the best. It had a strong P & C and is also the oldest school on the peninsula.
We moved the Deception Bay for a short while and when we returned to the peninsula my youngest son was enrolled at Scarborough State School where Peter Storch was the then principal. It was a wonderful school with a strong sense of community and so popular it had to have a cap put on it. That was a number of years ago.
With regard to the high schools Redcliffe State High is very good under the principalship of Shona McKinley. I have had little to do with Clontarf Beach State High for many years so can't comment.
The best way to find out about schools is to attend a P & C meeting and ask questions and go to the school open days. Each school has different pros and cons and you need to assess which one is best for your child.
Hope this helps.

SamanthaP Hi, my partner and I are considering moving to Redcliffe. Our main concern is we have a 6yr old daughter who needs to attend a special school and we need good medical facilities close by for her health needs. Are the "special schools" in the area difficult to get in to? Is there such a thing as living in a "catchment area" for the school? Is transport provided for disabled children to the special schools? Is there a decent hospital in the area with good paediatric services? Are there good facilities in general for disabled people in Redcliffe? We are coming from the UK so can't really visit the area before deciding on it.
All and any advice and info would be appreciated . Thanks!
Jun 29, 2016
Lynda and Mel
Lynda and Mel Hi SamanthaP, There are not only Special Schools on the Redcliffe peninsula - at Woody Point and Redcliffe - but the local primary schools also have programs for special needs children. It would depend on the special need as to which was more appropriate. In general there are good facilities available in the area. With regard to paediatriac services, there are services available and then there is the main children's hospital in Brisbane which has excellent facilities.
Jun 30, 2016
SamanthaP
SamanthaP Hi, that's very good to know. She's considered 'high needs' so would probably need a special school rather than being in a special class in a normal school. Redcliffe really looks like it might be the right spot for us!
Thanks for your help.

"Bogan-ville"

Redneck country, with every hoon with loud motorbikes or trumped up cars out at evey hour of the day or night. Even the two main supermarkets have bad quality food because the people in the area don't know what quality IS! So it is not their worthwhile to stock anything better than the bottom of the pit.

stormstep47
stormstep47 you are right Marion, I got trapped on the way to Northgate to catch the train into Brisbane the other day in peak hour, took 40 minutes from Rothwell, bogged down well before Nudgee College on Sandgate road, but if i ever have to do it again I reckon I could do it faster as I studied what was happening, I came home from Central at midday to Rothwell in 45 minutes. Train to Northgate and car to Home.

stormstep47 Overpopulated.Yes I was not happy when they decided to build a new bridge and fix the old one up ,(over to Brighton),it has encouraged a lot of people to come here, the rot really started back in the war years, WW2 when the Yanks built a concrete road at the Black Flat at Rothwell (a bog hole)on the way to Mango Hill ,before Salt Water Creek and after Salt Water Creek, it's still there (concrete road)covered with bitumen now, my family moved to that area in 1882 into a slab hut ,they thought it was the ants pants, one of them wrote a glowing reports about the dirt floor coverered with sacks, they got it off one of my neighbours great gran father back then. We have been all stuck in this Hell Hole all this time,and people are still moving here, I can't think where to go,I havn't seem any other place I want to go,I think I can stick it out till I die.

"From Inner city Brisbane to Redcliffe and I'm a happy lady!"

I have previously lived in inner-city Brisbane (New Farm, Kelvin Grove) and so my concerns about moving to Redcliffe included the following; (a) that the commute would be long and tedious, (b) that the people would be unfriendly and rough, (c) that the community would be homophobic (I'm a lesbian), and (c) that the amenities would be poor. After living on the Peninsula for 4 years, I feel as though I can now provide a fair review and while one of my fears were justified, the others I pleasantly found to be far from the case.

Pros
Beatiful beaches and tree lined streets; lovely walking tracks along the water; cool and lower humidity in the summer than inner-city Brisbane; cleaner air; MUCH cheaper groceries and petrol than Brisbane; lovely Sunday markets; a super relaxed vibe; friendly people (for the most part); buses that take you either directly to the city or to Sandgate train station; no parking troubles; easy driving; a low mortgage!!!!!; very pet friendly; fantastic vets and medical facilities; accepting of same-sex relationships (I certainly have not experienced any direct homophobia); some nice cafes.

Cons
It is a long and at times frustrating commute (especially if Deagon deviation is blocked); 20-25 mins drive to Sandgate train station (Redcliffe train line really is needed); the bus to the train takes a good 35 mins; it is difficult to get around if you find yourself without a car at any stage; annoying, tail-gaters often drive on the bridge; occasional general 'bogan' behaviour (we've had some dodgy neighbours a few times); certain streets aren't great - if you can find a place east of Oxley, you're in the better side of town; no good deli options (although Feel Goodz has just opened in Woody Point and is quite good).

A note on the cons, it goes without saying that there are annoying people and less than great streets in every neighbourhood - but having lived in a horrible street when I first moved to the Penninsula, I do think it is important to really examine the street you are looking to move into. While a place and the street view might look great on the internet/google maps, you won't get a good idea of the street without doing a physical look around. You can really feel the difference between good and icky parts of Redcliffe in a way that is much more prominent than inner-city Brisbane.

Overall, I'm very happy that I moved to Redcliffe. I love the small mortgage and the lovely walks and sea breezes. I absolutely love crossing that bridge everyday knowing that I am leaving inner-city life and inner-city noise and drama behind me. There is something very calming about coming home to a beautiful bay life.

Pawley Hi Lilian, thanks for you comprehensive and balanced review (yes people do read every word). We are thinking of moving to Redcliffe, but our budget doesn't stretch to east of the Oxley, so thinking possibly around Livermore Street way. Is that a thumbs-up or thumbs down based on your experience of the paceway area? Thanks.

"Great if you can afford water view"

I have the water view apartment so it's great. Enjoy every minuite being here. Even better with the new bridge and Redcliffe face life is on the way. Can't wait for it.
New Woolworth is nice.
I hope when Mon Komo (or somthing like that) finish it will be new chick cafes, restaurants and shops. Make Redcliffed more look like Moloolaba.

"ISLAND LIVING IN A BRISBANE SUBURB"

Newport, in particular the isles of Newport estate, is one of the newest Brisbane suburbs and is situated just 30 minutes from the CBD. Surrounded by water the peninsular where Newport sits feels like your living on an island. Newport is an ideal location where your only 40 minutes to the Sunshine Coast and 80 minutes to the Gold Coast. A perfect place if you own a boat because within a few minutes your in the water and off to the islands, fishing or just cruising. The suburb boasts young architecturally designed quality homes and has the potential to grow as more blocks are released both canal lots and dry lots. As these lots are released house pricing in Newport and will benefit. The cafe and alfresco dinning lifestyle is becoming more popular with new cafes and restaurants opening nearby to cope with the ever growing need. Newport really is the place to live so please keep it to yourself because if people find out they'll all want to be there!

There are cafes, restaurants and fast food outlets as well as pubs and clubs. Accommodation is plentiful and home prices are reasonable considering all the amenities and Redcliff’s close proximity to Brisbane.

"small town all grown up"

Redcliffe was once very separated from Brisbane. It was a holiday destination, a weekend shack spot. The real estate boom in the early 90's saw unprecedented development and growth in the area. Old shacks were knocked down and renovators made a killing. With commute distances becoming greater, Redcliffe is now an acceptable distance if you work in Brisbane. Beachfront addresses are quite prestigious and property on the peninsula is fairly expensive on the whole, but renting is a great option here. There are some great restaurants including fish n chippers. The locals are a great mix of retirees and young families and they are friendly for the most part. Looks like this small town grew up.

"An outer suburb of Brisbane by the sea attracting young families."

Redcliffe is a very old seaside town turning into a popular outer suburb of Brisbane and young couples are buying in this area. It is an area where young couples have been able to buy and renovate as and when their funds become available. From here residents commute quite easily into Brisbane for work.

Investors have also bought heavily in this area and there for there are a lot of renters here as well.

As an older town Redcliffe is a real mixture of old and new as the town grows and redevelops.

It can be quite a protected area at times as Morteon Island is off the coast. From Redcliffe you can access the very popular Moreton Bay for fishing.

There is a range of suburban homes, acreage and units available in this area and many activities available for the benefit of children.
