Waterfront property, community lifestyle, park and recreational activities.
The City of Redcliffe was Queensland's first settlement set amid Moreton, Bramble and Deception Bays and is now home to more than 50,000 residents. One of Redcliffe's most historic and celebrated foreshore areas, Suttons Beach, underwent a $2.4 million transformation in the late 90s, early 2000, resulting in a 1.5-kilometre re-landscaped recreational area. In addition, the reconstruction of the Redcliffe jetty and streetscape works on Landsborough Ave add to the charm and beauty of this small seaside town. The mix of old and new continues to make the area inviting to locals and visitors alike. Housing in the suburb is a mix of post war timber homes, increasing numbers of prestige waterfront properties and new suburban redevelopments. In recent years there has been a surge in residential unit developments, aimed at attracting investors.
Both investors and owner-occupiers have supported recent strong housing demand resulting in robust price growth. Young couples and families are moving into the area and making the most of the seaside facilities on offer and easy access to other Brisbane localities. Just 32 kilometres north of Brisbane's CBD, Redcliffe is accessible via the Bruce Highway and the Gateway Arterial Road to the Port of Brisbane and the Brisbane domestic and international airports (only 20 minutes away). A lingering concern among locals working in the Brisbane CBD is the lack of a rail link through to Redcliffe. Currently the line terminates at Brighton with no plans to extend across the Hornibrook Bridge into Redcliffe.
The suburb has a diverse range of both public and private business activities including tourism, manufacturing and light industry, retail and the fishing and seafood industry. The Redcliffe City Council has made a strong commitment to economic growth with recent initiatives including the construction of a new library and art gallery and the redevelopment of the Redcliffe hospital. The main commercial element is retail trade with most local residents commuting to Brisbane for work. Families are well catered for with several primary, high and special schools in Redcliffe and surrounding suburbs. Those undertaking tertiary education have access to a TAFE campus on Klinger Road.
