With a lifestyle score of 9 out of 10, and a leafiness score of 93% Camp Hill is a Brisbane suburb that’s stood the test of time and proves time and time again that it’s more than a quiet suburb close to the CBD.
The original settlers of the area were German farmers, and by the 1860’s a dairy was in full swing.
Today, you’ll find a suburb full of satisfied residents who absolutely love the peace and quiet. Here’s what they have to say . . .
‘Forgotten gem… I have lived here for most of my life, with the occasional stint in other cities. Camp Hill is one of Brisbane’s suburbs I actively encourage new residents to check out. Despite being so close to the city (10-20mins in good traffic), it is an often overlooked suburb hardly causes a blip on people’s radar. It’s a quiet, leafy suburb popular with young families, retirees, and more recently young professionals. Parts of the suburb have fantastic views and you can easily spot the city and beyond.’
‘The suburb encompasses a number of parks but is also home to the popular Whites Hill Reserve, which features great bushwalking, sports fields, children’s play equipment, BBQ facilities and picnic areas. It is also extremely close the Clem Jones Centre for the more sport-oriented people. There are numerous schools nearby – both private and public – catering for all ages of education.’
