Photo curtasy of Google Maps
If your anything like me and have no idea about Dinmore, then fear not. Above this paragraph is a snippet of a map fetched from Google maps. It shows that Dinmore is a smallish suburb located south west of the CBD, and closely north east from Ipswich.
Based completely from my analysis of this map, I’ve come to somewhat a conclusion as to why this town was voted in this way…
Not only driving to and back from work may be a pain, but also the noise level would be amazing. Dinmore had found itself surrounded on 3 sides with constant traffic travelling in and out of Brisbane.
As Lauren just explained in her previous article, Dinmore’s prices are surprisingly high for somewhere that isn’t close to any inner-city districts. If the prices were lowered in consideration of their circumstances I’m sure that their reputation would definitely heal.
Now this isn’t an argument, but isn’t it interesting how Dinmore is placed on the outside of both councils and it’s also been claimed as the worst place to buy? This seems a little strange to me…
If your visiting Dinmore and/or live there, we’d love to get some definite feedback as to what the situation out there is and maybe some photos to go along with your opinion…..

Dinmore, Brisbane has been revealed today as one of 13 worst places to buy property in Australia. I have never been to Dinmore but convinced that a suburb of Brisbane cannot possibly be one of the worst in Australia. Is Dinmore a lost cause or should we save its reputation?
A Google search offered houses still in the middle $200K… that’s a plus, I can’t remember the last time I saw a 3 bedroom home under $300K. There is an abundance of jobs advertised for the area, so if you are looking for a job and an affordable home, Dinmore looks like the place to be. Other then home listings and jobs I am at a dead-end on what Dinmore has to offer. I am tempted to drive out there this weekend to investigate.
Do you live in Dinmore or have you been there? Does it live up to its reputation?
Maybe that age old no news is bad news is true, I have taken a sudden interest in the Suburb, am writing a blog and even considering visiting Dinmore…

Every year I make that promise to myself to do something spectacular for my mum, and every year I end up as I am today… 2 weeks before with no present or ideas of what to do! There is so much to do in Brisbane, we are surrounded by amazing parks, beaches, attractions, restaurants, cafes and yet I sit here contemplating the fact that I can not think of anything to do!
I am sure there are many of you in the same dilemma, I have made a start on a list of places to go in Brisbane that may make mum happy next Sunday!
If anyone out there has any better ideas, please post them up! Living in, as the new ad campaign puts it, ‘this sleepy little town’, I am positive there are many secret places you are willing to share!
Look forward to hearing from all of you.
