Known for its tranquil streets, quality homes and close community, Tarragindi is perhaps best defined by its borders, with Toohey Forest Park to the south, the Southeast Freeway to the north and east, and historic neighbouring Annerley to the west, offering equal access to nature, modern transport and longstanding community spirit.

It’s no wonder with its multifaceted offering that the area has been increasingly favoured by families looking for both city access as well as liveability.

And now, the suburb has been listed on Smart Property Investment’s FAST 50 report for 2025, identifying some of the best prospects for investors looking to make smart property purchases in the year ahead.

The report and ranking drew on the insights of a 12-strong investment expert panel and recent housing performance drawn from open-source data, which aim to give unparalleled insights into the Australian suburbs that are set for future growth.

One of those experts, Melinda Jennison of Streamline Property Buyers, noted that the suburb’s data and demographics speak to the type of owner-occupiers or renters who are typically eyeing off homes in the leafy suburb.

“With 39.7 per cent of employed people in this suburb being in professional roles, median incomes in this suburb are much higher than the Queensland state average. The majority (i.e. 55.8 per cent) of the demographic are made up of couple families with children, confirming that it is a desirable location for families to settle into,” she explained.

Two primary schools – Wellers Hill State School and St Elizabeth’s Catholic Primary School – offer those with young children the choice of education models within an easy distance for school drop-offs. The numerous parks dotting the area equally appeal for their ample modern playground equipment.

Owing to its proximity to the city and easy access to many amenities, Tarragindi’s median house price sits above Brisbane’s as a whole.

While an average home in the suburb will set a buyer back roughly $1,238,750, Brisbane’s median house price currently rests at $937,479.

For this reason, investors interested in low entry points may have easily overlooked Tarragindi. But for those seeking steady long-term growth and solid investment fundamentals, there’s lots to recommend the area.

As with many nearby neighbourhoods, Tarragindi saw a dip in dwelling values over the last 12 months, falling back 3.2 per cent. But its historic data suggests that the rebound will be strong. Tarragindi has generally experienced annual quarterly growth of 1.2 per cent, and average annual growth of 8.6 per cent.

With its streets populated by classic Queenslander-style homes, its community-centred layout and proximity to the centre of bustling Brisbane, Tarragindi is expected to be a highly sought after suburb in the years ahead.
