We have relatives there, and live not far away. I think its improved from the days when it was known as Deadcliffe, and most of it is quite pleasant. Gentle beaches that are OK for little kids.

Hi there.

It depends where you are going to be working. Redcliffe isnt too far from Brisbane CBD in terms of say a London commute, but it would be a pain after a while. There is no direct train line and the road in from there in the morning would be a shocker most days.

Nice enough area though and the best fish and chips in SEQld are around there.

Hi!
We are trying to get there! I got a job with QLD Health and liked the look of Redcliffe.Still need to sell the house and complete the visas and then we will be heading that way.
We did a reccy and liked it but it's all down to personal opinion. It was called 'Deadcliffe' and we found it very different after staying with friends on The Gold Coast bit we loved the community feel and that it is beachy and safe for families. People were very friendly at the hospital and where we stayed. There is also a lot of redevelopment going on there and the travelling didn't seem so bad but like many of us, our view was holiday only - the people living over there know best and I am sure the commute is a bugger after a while.
Good luck with your choosing, it's such a big decision!
Lou

Hi

We are just at the early stage; sending off my skills assessment next week and then if that is okay 176 visa app to follow. We have been thinking of this for a couple of years and nearly applied 2007 but I got cold feet re family etc. But now 100% for this move after much thought.

Good to hear your views on Redcliffe. Carl are you out to live later this year? how long did your visa take? Nicky

We are at North Lakes renting at the mo which is 10 mins from Redcliffe. We have been quite a few times since we arrived in August. We do like the north side of Brisbane as it is near to beaches and mountains etc. Redcliffe seems very nice, as is Scarborough but only seen from the outside so far. the commute and how bad it is depends what time you travel. But saying that its not just the North side which has horrendous commutes. Many areas have them as they seem to be upgrading every road in Brisbane. Give it another 10 years and everyone will wonder what the fuss about travel was.

Hi
Can i ask, do you know what the situation is out there regarding building work?
We are emigrating in couple of months and wanted to go to North Lakes area, but have been given information that theres no building work at all.
Just thought i would ask as you are in the place we would like to come. Any info would be great.
Thanks

There are quite a few posts on this forum about the Redcliffe area. When Australians refer to Redcliffe it connotes the Redcliffe Peninsular and its 6 suburbs.

We are a family of 5 - girl (11) and twin boys (6). Redcliffe is by other standards a quiet area and at our life cycle it suits us immensely. I would not live anywhere else. Good schools, decent shopping, plenty to keep the kids occupied. Sunshine Coast 1 - 1.5 hours away; Bribie Island 50 minutes.

Commute into Brisbane CBD approximately 1 hour although I have done it in 30 minutes - depends on time of day.
