About Albany Creek 

Found 30 minutes to the north of Brisbane CBD, Albany Creek is a quiet suburb that appeals to professionals with kids and older couples. With a population of less than 16,000, this suburb was mostly a rural town until its development in the 1960s, when dozens of schools opened to attract more families. The choices of schools have remained the most important factor in moving to Albany Creek. Still, about five per cent of the area is dedicated to rural residential living.

Albany Creek locals need not venture far for essentials because they have Albany Creek Square, which has a good number of retail stores catering to their needs. The suburb also boasts a lot of green spaces for outdoor and sporting activities.



“Albany Creek is very family-friendly and a nicely established suburb. Places like Warner and Cashmere and Eatons Hill are also good but without the library, swimming pool and general shops and facilities that Albany Creek has. Fairly low key feel to it and well established with lots of trees and greenery around the residential housing areas.”

“We relocated a family to Albany Creek last year and for a suburb close to the city i was pleasantly surprised. The access to the city is great for private or public transport, people seemed friendly and the houses were majority brick built and lovely.”
