Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are in a leafy part of Brisbane with plenty of colourful native birds, including rosellas and cockatoos, nesting in nearby trees. With this bush setting we are still only 13 minutes drive to the city centre. There are great restaurants and cafes in the area and also the largest shopping centre in Brisbane only five minutes away. The famous beaches of the Sunshine and Gold Coasts are within easy reach by car as are the theme parks both north and south of Brisbane. The world class rain forests on the Gold Coast hinterland are within a scenic hour's drive from our front door. The same can be said about the world heritage listed sand island, Fraser Island, to the north. The alternative mecca of Bryon Bay is only two hours drive away for a perfect days outing. Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary at Fig Tree Pocket, is the world's first, and largest, koala sanctuary only 10 minutes drive away. Brisbane Forest Park backs on to our street has facilities to suit everyone, beautiful scenery for picnicking, bushwalking, sightseeing, camping, birdwatching, horse-riding or cycling. One minute from our house is Merri Merri Park which is home to a basketball half-court, barbecue and playground. Brisbane Planetarium at nearby Brisbane Botanic Gardens (Mt Cooth-tha) is a short drive away. Take a birds-eye view of Brisbane and soak up the beautiful lights of the city from the water tower around the corner.
