About Wynnum West

  • Postcode: 4178
About 18km from Brisbanes CBD, Wynnum West, like its neighbouring suburb of Manly West, is attracting buyers who are looking for relatively affordable, quality housing by the bay. Over 50 per cent of houses accommodate families, retirees and older residents who make up the majority of the population. A wide cross section of couples and families are being attracted by the extensive redevelopment around the waterfront precinct and the street scaping around the Wynnum and Manly areas. As demand has increased, the services and amenities around Wynnum West have adapted to ensure new and existing residents are well serviced by commercial and retail precincts, public transport and local amenities. Train services to the Brisbane CBD -- approximately 35 minutes -- and regular bus routes incorporating the surrounding suburbs ensure that residents can get around relatively easily without private transport. The Wynnum Hospital is located in Whites Road, Wynnum and residents are serviced by plenty of public and private schools (approximately six primary, two secondary, six kindergartens). The closest TAFE is at Alexandra Hills, approximately 10 minutes away. The suburb has access to all the major supermarket and retail chains at Wynnum Plaza and Wynnum Central, while Manly Harbour Shopping Village and street shopping are available close by. Local shopping villages and nurseries are also plentiful in the area. In neighbouring suburbs, Capalaba Park, Capalaba Central and Westfield Carindale are within 15 to 20 minutes drive. The area comes alive during the summer months with plenty of bike and walkways, a community swimming pool and a well-maintained seawater wading pool, as well as many outdoor activities such as canoeing, rollerblading, and biking (all available for hire). With very little land remaining, renovation of older homes and cottages are becoming more popular with homebuyers wanting the bayside lifestyle.
