  2. Hi, We will be arriving in Narangba just a few days before Christmas. Have a house and everything sorted but thought after a long drive from Adelaide it would be nice to just go out somewhere for a nice Christmas lunch. Looking for somewhere that will serve quite traditional food so was hoping to see if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks in advance Deb

    Primary Schools in and around Narangba

    My husband has been offered a job in Narangba and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on primary schools in the area. I don't really know where to start! Any advice would be much appreciated :arghh:

    Narangba - thoughts please?

    It looks likely that DH will be offered a job in Narangba. Well either there or Petrie but we think it will be in Narangba. I have done a search on here and it looks quite positive. Anyone have any thoughts/experiences about the area? Any experience of the schools? I have read a bit about the chemical place which is obviously a bit of a concern. Many thanks.
  5. Hi all, I am currently in Adelaide but heading up to Qld next week to check out schools before making the final move in December. I called a couple of schools on my hit list the top of which was Narangba State High. I got quite a chilly reception from them and when I requested a tour around the school, I was told they didn't allow people to look around? And I could speak to someone who would tell me everything I needed to know and enrol with them. Anyway that person wasn't available so I am waiting for a call back. The second school on my list was Dakabin State High. I had a nice lady greet me on the phone and she said they would be happy to show us around. Anyway I found a website http://bettereducation.com.au where you can see the school rankings. Narangba far out-rates Dakabin at 82-68 My head is a mess I don't know how to work this. If I could actually go to both schools I could probably get a feeling for which one suits my daughter best and she could give her feedback too. But to enrol without actually seeing the school doesn't sound right to me at all. Does anyone have any experience of either of these schools or know of anyone who does. Thanks in advance from a :confused: very confused Deb

    Narangba - Bris CBD commute

    Anyone has some more detail on what the commute is like from Narangba to Brisbane CBD? I checked the trainride and it says on Translink it's 55 mins. Are the trains busy/overcrowded? They only give one way fare prices, what will the cost be on average per week (5x up and down)? Are the trains frequent? What is it like to drive? We've driven it, but not during commuting hours, I was wondering if it's majorly different? Will it take longer or shorter by car instead of the train? Any info from someone who does a regular commute would be appreciated Nathalie

    Narangba is about 40 mins from the sunshine coast and about 50mins into the CBD of Brisbane. From my house it takes me 10 mins to the local shopping mall at Morayfield and 15mins the other way to the North Lakes Shopping plaza, 20 mins to Strathpine Plaza and 25 mins to Chermside which I have yet to visit so will let you know on that one! Its massive though... There are 2 primary schools in the area - Jinibara state school www.jinibarrass.eq.edu.au and Narangba Valley state school Home page My daughter attends Jinibara as we live outside the catchment for Narangba Valley and it is a lovely school. She used to cling to me at school time in Uk but here she is so confident and happy and a different child! The secondary school has an excellant reputation here - Narangba Valley SHS There are alot of nurserys in the area - 2 of which are right next to the schools. www.sesamelane.com.au Tadpoles Early Learning Centres - Child Care in South East Queensland www.childcare.com.au My local shops are less than 5 mins by car - they consist of Woolworths (grocery store - not like in UK) pizza place, dvd/video rental, newsagent, bakery, fish n chip shop, bank, chemist, dentist, real estate, pool shop, tavern, gym, vets and a tavern. There is another small selection of shops in Narangba at Main Street which include doctors, dentist, library, chemist, pizza, IGA (grocery's) real estate, butchers and more, 5 mins to Burpengary and you have another selection of shops including the Burpengary Plaza, Subway, Red Rooster (like KFC) gym, and many more. When we need a beach fix we go to Bongaree on Bribie Island (20mins away) or Settlement Lagoon ,Redcliffe(20 mins away) which are both fantastic for families. Redcliffe City Council - Discover Redcliffe and have the time of your life We spent Xmas day on Bongaree with friends having a barbi and enjoying the Kayaks with all the kids. Brisbane Queensland Australia - suburbs - maps - accommodation - events - street and business directory - restaurants - ourbrisbane.com is a really good site for finding suburbs you may like and anything you need to know about schools, things to do etc. Real Estate, Property, Land and Homes for Sale, lease and rent - realestate.com.au is great for sussing out rental prices etc. Hope this gives you enough to be getting on with!!!!

    Hi. Does anyone have any information on Bellmere? We're currently renting in Moronfield (sorry, Morayfield), which I would not recommend, and we're hoping to buy soon. We've investigated and know a few people who live in Narangba and Burpengary, and we are considering those areas, but we saw a house today in Bellmere which was near enough perfect: silly as it sounds, the one thing which is putting us off is the low price! We know it's currently getting built up, but that area is down the road from the house we saw, so we wondered if there's any other reasons for the low prices. Caboolture is a couple of K's away, and it does all seem very nice. I'd just like to know the best area to buy in Outer North Brisbane: the kids are settled in their school at Morayfield, so we want to be within 15 minutes drive of there, and the two of us work near the airport, so Burpengary and Narangba seem to tick the boxes for us, but now this lovely house in Bellmere has come up and made us think again! If anyone has further information on these areas, please let me know - anything to sort this out: we're ready to move!! Thanks for your time

  19. Hi If anyone wants a modern house with a pool in Narangba's Creekside then ring Ideal real estate in Burpengary. Hurry as its not on the internet yet. 38881249 is the number to ring. If you have a dog then he is a bit dubious about having one inside so if i were you i wouldnt even mention a dog. You can always say you are dog sitting or something and the owner wont be in Brisbane as he is moving to Mackay. Its on for $500 per week and its got 4 or 5 beds (cant remember for sure) It is next to shops and schools and is a nice area. 10 mins to Bruce Highway. Hope it helps someone Georgie

    News on Narangba

    This article was published today in the Brisbane Courier Mail about air pollution in Narangba. I know some were heading that way and might find this interesting. I still think they are not telling all they know! Harmful dust particles found near Narangba Estate | The Courier-Mail
  22. Hi all Still thinking Narangba (mainly down to house prices). But does anyone regret living here instead of elsewhere? Just a bit worried its too out in the middle of nowhere with absolutely nothing happening. Recently read about certain areas lacking a sense of community so anyone have a point of view about Narangbas community? We did want to try and find somewhere with a town centre rather like where we come from in England but Hervey Bay seems a little isolated. Does anyone know of a cheapish neighbourhood with an actual centre and decent schools? Preferably on the North side (thats if Narangba proves not to be siutable). I am stressing out now and cant get my head round it all. Basically can anyone put my mind at rest by telling me Narangba is GREAT:chatterbox:!!! Help

Any tips or hints would be appreciated, any social activities or BBQ's would be appreciated for all of us! So we can get to know people. Keep us posted:smile:
  24. Hi there Just thought for anyone heading that way it would be nice to get a list of people and maybe arrange a newcomers get together. You can put down your name if you want to come from further afield too. Hope to hear from some of you Georgie
