Looking for an affordable new home in a suburb close to Brisbane and close to the beach that has it all? Look no further than Burpengary East!
Burpengary East is part of the beautiful Moreton Bay region, located in the northern corridor between the world-famous Sunshine Coast and the bustling state capital of Brisbane. At just 35 minutes from the Sunshine Coast we’re nice and close to the beach, as well as being close to Brisbane at 45 minutes from the CBD and approximately 45 minutes from Brisbane airport.
Burpengary East is well located for easy access to the Bruce Highway, the major route to both the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane CBD and Morayfield train station is just 10 minutes away offering an easy city commute.
For a leafy, semi-rural suburb, Burpengary East has a surprising number of amenities. We boast our own shopping and medical complex, “The HUB”, which includes a bakery, fish and chips, bottle-o, butcher, pizza and pasta takeaway, childcare centre, spice shop, hair salon and beautician, IGA, dentist, chemist, accountant, naturopath and medical centre which is just under five minutes’ drive from North Harbour.
We’ve also just welcomed a brand-new 7-11 service station and a new child care centre and North Harbour itself has a new café onsite offering breakfast and lunch seven days a week.
Five minutes’ drive from The Hub is Burpengary which is home to two shopping centres, The Burpengary Plaza and Burpengary Central. Burpengary is a growing town which retains a comfortable country feel with library, community centre and a thriving high street, yet has all the major supermarkets available as well as a brand-new Kmart and heaps of local shops, gyms and other amenities. A host of new restaurants have also opened recently adding to the already plentiful local eatery choices including Basil & Vine Italian, The Burrito Bar, Thai and Sushi among the plentiful options on offer. YUM!
North Harbour and Burpengary East are also just 10 minutes from Costco and Ikea and both North Lakes Westfield and Morayfield shopping centres. Both areas have excellent facilities and include all the major stores from Spotlight to Harvey Norman, TKMaax and more.
North Harbour itself offers amenities which are truly 21st-century with access to the fastest residential broadband connection in Australia and reticulated natural gas to every home.
We differ from similarly sized southeast Queensland developments in that on completion we will offer a huge 1000 acres of open space and parklands (even larger than Central Park in New York) including environmental corridors, river access and a unique $3m Heritage Park with fishing platforms and canoe launches (currently under construction). This 1000 acres will include walking and bike tracks, lots of trees (over 60,000 have already been planted) and plenty of play equipment for young and older kids, BBQs, artworks and picnic areas as well as exercise equipment.
