"A convenient place to live"

No so far from the city. Very good public transport (there's a bus to the city every 10 minutes). A variety of eating out options closeby including Chinese, Italian, Afgan, Indian and other fastfood options like Hungry Jacks, Mcdonals, Redrooster, Pizzahut etc. Close to shopping malls. There's QEII hospital in case of emergency. Nothing to camplain, really!
Pros
  • Transport - excellent busway to city & express to Uni of Queensland
  • Easy access to City, Uni, Schools, Food and shopping
  • Inner areas are both quiet and still close to everything - walk to the shops 5-10mins

"Good little suburb with great access to everything"

Very good suburb with a mix of everything. From students/families and student accommodation down the bottom part of the hill to some of the best presented houses on the southside of Brisbane up a bit higher. A mix of people from students, to professionals, tradespeople and retirees. Overall a very good suburb with a mix of some rented out houses, lots of owner occupiers and a few good townhouse complexes (again some for students some mainly for owner occupiers). Nice high position at the top end of the hill and very quiet (a few streets in from Mains and Kessels Roads). Best point - central to all ammenities - excellent transport facilites (approx 20mins to/from the CBD on the bus - via the busway). About 3-5min drive (or walk/bus) to Sports fields, Garden City Shopping, Hospital, Griffith Uni, Sunnybank Restaurants and Robertson Primary School. About a 7-10min ride to get on the bikeway in to the city. Buses straight to UQ/Garden City and more also run regularly.
Pros
  • Easy access to City, Uni, Schools, Food and shopping
  • Transport - excellent busway to city & express to Uni of Queensland
  • Inner areas are both quiet and still close to everything - walk to the shops 5-10mins
Cons
  • Outer edges can be noisy along the main roads

"Is a place for entertainment"

Robertson is a nice area which gives you easy access to freeway, local shops, nice foods and schools. House price is booming in robertson too.

"Great for young families and university students"

We have lived in Robertson for 15 years and found the local primary school excellent. Pity though that there are few good quality high schools in the area and therefore our children need to travel from grade 8.

The suberb has increasingly become over-run by university students and over crowding in rental houses is an issue in some streets. on the whole though Robertson is a quiet decent suberb although it could go either way over the next few years.

It is closer to the city than most people imagine (15 minutes on a normal day) and will be even better positioned once the Mains and Kessels Road underpass is constructed. It offers excellent proximity to Griffith university, QEII Hospital, Garden city and Sunnybank shops.

kittyx
kittyx very handy location, close to Griffith Uni, QEII Hospital, Stadium, Garden City West Field, Sunnybank Shopping Center, Motorway. Expensive houses , beautiful safe and quiet suburb. It also has a sought after primary school there, which out of school zone parents would queue 2 nights before to enroll their kids. It is one of the most convenient best suburb in south side.
