Suburbs in Brisbane

Hi Joy peeps

It can be so confusing trying to work out how all the suburbs fit together in a city, and exactly what each suburb is like and ¬†just even where it is. Actually lets be honest, I get totally confused the whole time myself !!!! and Jo and Chrissy try not to laugh the whole time ( actually we just laugh no point not to really ūüėČ )

So we thought we would show you a very simple list of all the suburbs we have here in Brisbane as a good reference point for you, and to point you in the direction of their profiles

The council also a fantastic online map so check this link out

There are 5 main areas within Brisbane and they are split up like this

Inner Brisbane

Northern Brisbane

What’s for Dinner – Pizza

Hello Joy peeps What’s for Dinner ? we hear you cry Here...
Read More


  • Hi ladies, thank you for your lovely website! I have enjoyed reading it as we plan a move to Australia.
    I am an Aussie married to a Canadian and we have lived in Canada since getting married 10 years ago. We are moving back to Oz now (yay!) and to Brisbane in fact. We plan to be there sometime between September and January, depending on my husband’s visa and selling our house. I grew up in Sydney and have no idea about Brisbane. I am wondering if you could help us with some suburb suggestions?
    We have a 5 year old who will start school in January and a 3 year old. We’re okay with up to a 45min commute to CBD for husband’s job (in order to get a lower mortgage). We would like a family neighbourhood, with a good state school, shops, parks, church etc. My parents live in Coffs Harbour so I wouldn’t mind being somewhere with good access to the Pacific Highway to get to them. But open to suggestions! Any ideas where we should look?
    Regards, Jemima
