“Stunning views of the Gateway Bridge and the Brisbane River.” The eastern suburb of Murarrie has had an interesting past with a variety of industries such as sugar cane and cotton growing to meatworks and boatbuilding. It still supports a number of industries but nowdays has lots of modern housing as well. Murarrie is ideally situated for transport close to the Gateway Motorway, Wynnum and Creek Roads and with its own railway station. Cannon Hill and Carindale shopping centres are very close by and the large Murarrie Recreation Area offers everything from biketracks and bbq areas to skate parks and canoe ramps. Murarrie is about 8km from Brisbane’s CBD. Over 42% of households in this area are comprised of couples with children. A further 28% of households are couples without children. 25% of households are single parent families. There are very few units or townhouses in this area and stand-alone houses account for 99% of the dwellings in Murarrie. This suburb has had a number of new estates opened up recently so you’ll find brick and tile homes in those areas, the older areas tend more towards post-war, weatherboard cottages with the traditional tin roof.
