Brisbane City Council 2017-18 rates rise: See how your suburb fared??


Brisbane property owners will receive a different-looking rates bill next quarter with some residents being slugged with a 6.6 per cent increase.

On Wednesday, Lord Mayor Graham Quirk announced an average 2.4 per cent rates increase in the 2017-2018 budget.

Just three of Brisbane's 185 suburbs had the exact average rate rise of 2.4 per cent.

A 2.4 per cent increase at Herston equals $40.50 a year. In Red Hill it means an extra $47.18 a year and, for Wynnum West, 2.4 per cent means an extra $30.08 a year.

The suburbs across Brisbane that will have the highest average rates bill in 2017-2018 are:

Chandler ($2892.09)

Chelmer ($2781.60)
