Kuraby

Kuraby

Kuraby is a suburb of Brisbane, situated 17 km south-west of the Brisbane CBD, and borders the suburbs of Underwood, Stretton and Runcorn.  Kuraby is serviced by a train service to Brisbane city and the Gold Coast, whilst a bus service takes commuters to the large shopping centres of Upper Mount Gravatt and Springwood.

Kuraby has seen exceptional growth in terms of its median house price growth in recent years compared with neighbouring suburbs.  The main reason for this is the attractive topographical elevation of the area, creating an atmosphere of leafy bushland tranquillity. The suburb has also undergone extensive residential development over the last few years.

As would be expected the housing styles of the newly developed areas of Kuraby are high and low set brick and tile homes.  There are still some examples of older-style houses – post war weatherboard cottages left over from the days when the suburb was first established.

The area is developing new infrastructure as the community base increases.  Presently the suburb boasts a State Primary School and Special School, a railway station that runs to the City and south to the Gold Coast, it has a shopping precinct with its main commercial district being serviced by the nearby suburb of Underwood.

Kuraby has a high proportion of homeowners compared with other southside suburbs.
