Why choose Fitzgibbon?
Fitzgibbon is a suburb of northern Brisbane, nestled between Bracken Ridge, Taigum, and Carseldine. At just 3.1 square kilometres, Fitzgibbon is a tiny, triangle-shaped suburb with plenty of green space and affordable housing. The up and coming suburb was only subdivided for residential development in the 1980s and 1990s, so when compared with the rest of northern Brisbane, it’s relatively new.
The area contains mostly high-density residential developments that cater to Fitzgibbon’s multicultural community. Homes are either low-set brick or two-storey, as well as modern townhouses and units. The suburb is in an excellent location, with easy access to major roads and public transportation at either Carseldine or Zillmere train stations. It’s only 17 kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD, which makes it an easy commute for professionals.
For young families, Fitzgibbon has Holy Spirit College, a Catholic school for both boys and girls. The closest government schools are in nearby Taigum or Bracken Ridge.
