"Family Friendly Suburb With Great Accessibility To All Of Brisbane"

I have both lived and worked in Upper Mount Gravatt and from my experience it is a brilliant spot in Brisbane. The suburb has long been one of the major centres outside Brisbane's CBD. The area contains plenty of green spaces, parks and bikeways for those that love the outdoors, and for those avid shoppers, Westfield Garden City is in the heart of the area whilst Westfield Carindale is only a short drive. For young families, the 4122 area is known for it's plethora of good quality schools, featuring two of the state's top 10 rated high schools (as of May 2020). Due to it's central location on Brisbane's southside, Upper Mount Gravatt has great accessibility to Brisbane's CBD, the Airport, Sunshine and Gold Coast via it's close proximity to the Pacific Motorway and Gateway Motorway and also has excellent public transport due to the South-East Busway. If you're looking for a family friendly suburb that has it all, Upper Mount Gravatt must be on your short list!

"It has everything close by and very safe"

I live here and its perfect. My street has a new park/playground at the end of it. You can walk to Westfield Garden City shopping centre which also has the best bus service to the city. It has an award winning bakery 150m away. It has a new southside leagues club over the road. Has a Goodlife gym 100m away. Many businesses including state and federal government officers are close by allowing me to walk to work. Easy jump onto the M1 highway and still close to the gateway. Super safe suburb. University and Hospitals very close. There are weekend markets and lots of sporting facilities in the area. I bought an apartment here and love it, just wish i could afford a house in Upper Mount Gravatt.

"Perfect access to North, South, East & West"

Not too many suburbs where you can get incredible access to all major freeways that take you to the Gold Coast (40 minutes), Airport (25 minutes), City (20 minutes) and Sunshine Coast (<90 minutes) and Toowoomba (< 2 hours). For this reason, the locals call the Upper Mount Gravatt precinct the "Centre Of The Wagonwheel". Great schools, great shopping and ever increasing places to dine out make Upper Mount Gravatt a hidden gem for families with children and professional couples alike. Excellent sporting clubs for children first class access to public transport. I studied here in the 80s and have come back to live here since 2001......and still absolutely love it!!!
