More Info on Redcliffe pls

Recommended Posts

Guest IlkleyMoorBahtat

Hi All,

We are a family of four (2 boys aged 3.5 and 1.5). We are currently researching places to live in north Brisbane and particularly like the look of Redcliffe. It ticks the boxes for us in terms of being close to the beach, not too long a commute to Eagle Farm and we can find rentals within our budget.

 

I was just wondering if anyone lives there with small children? Is there plenty to do for little ones, toddler groups, classes etc?

 

Are there any negatives for families?

 

Many Thanks

Louise

Hi, we have lived in Redcliffe for the past 3 years now. Our girls are older 12 and 9 yrs, but it certainly ticks all the boxes for us. They have lots of activities that they can do.Can't comment on activities for toddlers but I would imagine that it is very good also. Hope this helps. Elena

hi. I have stayed in Redcliffe on all of my visits to Aus as have relatives living there however, on last visit which was the first time with our daughter, we stumbled upon Scarborough which had a lovely child friendly beach and kiddy park.

Good luck

i lived on the peninsular (margate/redcliffe scarbrough) for 3 years--we lived in scarbrough for 2--i found it a very relaxing,and frienly place to live--eagle farm is about a 40 minute drive away--there heaps of things to do--if you just want to chill out with the family---theres a saying once you have lived on the peninsula you will never leave

It's all been said Jim. Redcliffe is a great place..................just have to make sure you pick your area correctly as there can be a few drongos in some areas. Lots of poms there too.

it looks really lovely, thanks so much for that. It's certainly high on our list of places to check out when we get there.

 

My boys would love the park near the beach.

 

Is it really nov - may when you can't swim due to the jellies? All through the Summer?

The jelly fish don't really bother us, they are not the dangerous type. Usually get them after the North winds, but haven't seen them so far. At the moment the beach is off limits due to the floods.

Hi there are 2 state high schools on the peninsula, Redcliffe State High and Clontarf Beach State school. My kids don't go to either. I believe that Redcliffe has an excellent academic reputation, they used to be quite strict about only letting kids in who live in the catchment area. I have friends who have kids at both of the schools and they all seem to be doing really well. Elena

Just bumping my post up again in the hope of getting some info from families with young children living there. What's it like for toddler groups / libraries / classes etc?

Thanks

We have a few friends living close to Redcliffe at North Lakes so been up there a few times now. It seems to be a lovely area to us with lots of things to do.

 

Here are some photos of the beach and the pool at redcliffe, which is free to all :wink:
