Local Reviews

I've only lived in this neighborhood for the last 5 years but there's lots to love about this leafy green suburb in Brisbane.

On weekends, when I am free, I will go to the nearby shopping mall for shopping, and I will also take a walk and exercise in the nearby park, and then I often go to the restaurant for dinner.

To the park and the water park outside of my area. Also love having water balloon fights with my little kids.
