Suburb Profile - Tarragindi
About eight kilometres from Brisbane's CBD, Tarragindi's proximity to the city and its diversity of housing has resulted in excellent capital growth over the past five years. A southern suburb near Annerley, Tarragindi has easy access to the city and Fortitude Valley along Ipswich Road and the Southeast Freeway. There is a wide range of housing in the area, from affordable older properties, to more expensive homes on the hills, and Tarragindi has become increasingly popular with those buyers looking for a well-established middle-ring suburb. Housing styles vary from post-war weatherboard workers' cottages to old Queenslanders. A good deal of renovation has occurred in the suburb, which has contributed to an increase in median house prices. Local facilities are plentiful with the suburb having a huge recreational reserve, a Catholic Primary School, the Tarragindi Hill reserve and an RSL Club.
