“Greenslopes is great for families. We relocated from Victoria over 18 years ago and have never looked back. We had a great selection of schools, both private and public. All schools in the area offer quality education. There are many sporting clubs in and around the area. Close to the Gabba for AFL and Cricket. The public transport is great, especially great when you have teenage children. Even though we are very close to the city, traffic noise in our area is very minimal. To drive into the city during non peak hour take about 7 -10 minutes, a bit longer during peak time.”

“Greenslopes is pretty good by way of public transport in terms of volume of services, although buses are often late. It is conveniently located close to the city, has good grocery facilities, and an excellent network of bike paths. Getting out of the suburb can be problematic in peak times, due to the build-up of traffic on both the Pacific Motorway and the Riverside Express, but usually, it is hassle-free. There are some nice parks in the area and it feels pretty safe. Its dining scene won’t set the world on fire but it is improving. Greenslopes feels like a suburb on the cusp of renewal.”
