Sandgate attracts people who love being near the water and are looking for a relaxed outdoors lifestyle. Residents enjoy sea breezes, beautiful views and all the other attractions of Moreton Bay. It is located approximately 20 kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD and has a relatively short 25-30 minute commute by train into the city.
Residents are well catered for with Sacred Heart and Sandgate State Primary schools. There are a number of other primary and secondary schools in the surrounding suburbs including St Patricks College for boys and Shorncliffe Primary School in Shorncliffe and St John Fisher College for girls and the North Point Institute of TAFE in Bracken Ridge.
The Sandgate Village along Brighton Road services the retail and commerce needs of the community. There are plenty of dining options in and around Sandgate, so if you are looking for a café, pub or restaurant, you’ll find it here. There are fish and chip shops scattered along the foreshore so you can enjoy take away by the beach with seagulls squawking in the salty breeze.
