It is a traditional family home, situated in a safe and secure, and flood free, yet central Brisbane suburb of Enoggera.
The home is ideally suited to those visiting Brisbane and South East QLD, renovators, or families relocating to Brisbane.
Public transport is at either end of the street - within 5 mintues walk.
The home backs on to a popular family park, and Little Sandy Creek. The Kedron Brook bike and walkway is located close by.
Royal Brisbane hospital or Queensland University of Technology campus are a short 10 minute bus ride.
You will also find a range of cafe's and takeaway stores within walking distance or major shopping centres a short bus ride or walk away!
The Gold Coast or Sunshine coast beaches and attractions are an easy day trip (depending upon traffic around 1.5 hours each way).
Beaches popular with windsurfers, fisherman and swimmers, such as those on the Redcliffe Peninsula and Nudgee are around 30 minutes away.
Nature lovers have access to a range of local walking trails and a 10 minute drive will have you bushwalking in D'Aigular National Park.

The Queensland region
Brisbane is sometimes called the River City, enjoying a balmy climate most of the year, although it can get chilly in Winter!
Many of the suburbs are on, or close by the river and the various beaches within an hour or so of the city.
From October to April you will find most Brisbane people out enjoying the water and the sunshine!
Many Brisbane people take advantage of the facilities located along the city reaches of the river - Southbank parklands and its manmade lagoons, weekend markets, restaurants and cafes, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) , Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) and the Wheel of Brisbane.
A popular visitor past time is boarding the commuter ferries to explore the reaches of the River - a great way to see the city.
Moreton Island, a large sand island, located around 50 kilometres north east of Brisbane, is very popular with visitors and locals alike. The Tangalooma ferry will take you across to the island, where you can feed dolphins or swim in the crystal clear waters. The Tangalooma ferry is around 30 minutes drive from Enoggera.
City of Brisbane
Enoggera is a traditional Brisbane suburb, with a mix of housing including Queenslanders, post war homes and many built in the 1960's. It is very centrally located and close to most amenities.
Its proximity to Brisbane City makes for easy access to Brisbane city attractions by a range of very accessible public transport and road options. Under normal circumstances, the city is less than 10 minutes away by car, and 15 by train.
In the general area you will find a range of parks, sporting fields, shopping and restaurant facilities.
A 30 minute drive will take you to Mount Glorious and D'Aigular National Park, where you can bushwalk and observe a range of Australian wildlife. The Brisbane River, and various beaches (Bribie Island, Redcliffe, Gold Coast) are all within an easy drive.
Enoggera is also home to the Gallipoli Army Barracks.

"Good location for exploring Brisbane area"
Sandy creek is well located to explore Brisbane and local area. It is close to the railway station making it easy to get into Brisbane. The facilities are good and as posted. The pool is excellent especially after a hard day exploring.
