Situated just 16 kilometres from Brisbane CBD (a 1/2 hour drive) sits the family friendly, residential suburb of Carseldine. Easy freeway excess gets you to both the Sunshine Coast (north) or the Gold Coast (south) in under an hour and a half but also, a mere 25 minute drive gets you to Redcliffe and surrounds – sea, sun, sand – shops and a hospital!
Public Transport Options Abound
Public transport by way of buses and trains gets you daily to work or play. The North-coast railway line in fact bounds Carseldine on the east with the Carseldine Railway Station housing your options of routes to your destination.
Although at last official check (the Census) most people living in Carseldine traveled to work in a car, over 15% were using some form of public transport to get to either the City or other work location nearby. With record investment in public transport infrastructure planned in Queensland and much of that in the highly populous areas, convenient transport to and from properties in Carseldine will only increase.
