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.
Know for its picturesque hills and beautiful cottages, Paddington is the vein of the Inner West, running outwards from the City and adjoining Red Hill to the North, Bardon to the West and Auchenflower to the South. As you travel down Caxton Street, past Suncorp Stadium, onto Given and Latrobe Terraces, you will see why Paddington is such a desirable place to live in Brisbane.
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!
