Redcliffe Suburb Profile
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 Avenue 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.
Both investors and owner-occupied home owners have supported recent strong housing demand resulting in robust real estate price growth. Young couples and families are buying property in the Redcliffe 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).
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 and Brisbane CBD for work.
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.
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 Klingner Road.
