why live in Taringa?

WHAT LOCALS SAY

Taringa is a fantastic little suburb. It is so close to the city but still leafy, green and nice and quiet for families and young professionals alike. Perrin Park and Jack Cook park have a number of facilities plus bike tracks and playgrounds for children. Taringa has a great sense of community and peacefulness that most inner city suburbs don’t offer. It is close to train, bus and ferry options so it is so easy to get around Brisbane and you are never too far from anything.

WHY WE LOVE Taringa

Taringa is centrally located between Mt Coot-tha, Indooroopilly, Toowong and St Lucia. Moggill Road splits the suburb through the middle and provides easy access to the Brisbane CBD and Western Freeway. Taringa is well serviced by bus and has a dedicated train station.

Popular with young professionals, students, and families, Taringa is just so close to the University of Queensland (St Lucia), schools and the Brisbane CBD, with a right mix of houses and units. The convenient Taringa Day & Night medical centre and pharmacy are well known to most western suburbs locals.

Swann Road boasts spectacular city views and some mid-rise unit developments, which take full advantage. Of course, it is 1/2 min drive from the newly renovated Indooroopilly Shopping Centre plus it has its shops at Taringa on Moggil Road, as well as schools and medical facilities. Also, UQ is only a few minutes away for students, so it is perfect!
