Carindale has some of Brisbane's grandest homes in its dress circle near the Pacific Golf Course, one of Brisbane's best courses. They are the sort of homes you can't help driving past and ogling for their lavishness and ornate exteriors. The suburb was established in the 1980s and still feels quite new and modern. Most of the homes are brick and there are some modest residences as well as the mansions. The suburb has an excellent bus service and close access to the Gateway Motorway, M1 and airport. There are good schools - both private and state, close by.
