The designs of Valeco homes cater to everyone from large families to downsizers wanting small lots, as well as investors and first home buyers on a tight budget. Valeco’s building designers and interior design team rely on a combination of experience and industry training to create a modern, yet family-oriented finish. The team prides themselves on being true complete turn-key builders. They’ll work with you to make sure you get exactly the look you’re after and make your dream home a reality.
Food Glorious Food
A large part of what makes North Harbour such a great place to live is our excellent location in the booming suburb of Burpengary East. We have plenty of great places to eat, drink and be merry right on our doorstep. Below are some of our favourites:
Burpengary East – The Hub:
Divine Pizza & Pasta; Shop 6, 115-117, The Hub, Burpengary East www.divine-pizza.com.au/
With a wide menu including perfectly cooked woodfired pizzas, succulent ribs and tasty pasta dishes, Divine Pizza & Pasta is one of our favourite go-to dinner stops. Perfect for an easy meal at home, or al fresco in one of our parks while the kids have a play, there’s something for everyone on this great menu. In fact, we love it so much that everyone who moves into North Harbour gets a voucher for a pizza meal as a welcome gift!
Just A Little Bit Naughty; Shop 13 / 115-117 Buckley Road, Burpengary East www.justalittlebitnaughty.com.au
Another regular haunt of the North Harbour team, this awesome café serves great breakfasts and lunches with excellent coffee and cheerful service. It’s the perfect place to grab a bite with friends and is very popular with locals and visitors alike.
Maria’s Seafood; 2 Buckley Rd & Uhlmann Road, Burpengary East
If you’ve got a hankering for fish and chips you can’t go far wrong with Maria’s Seafood. Lots to choose from, decent prices and portion sizes.
Five minutes past The Hub in our neighbouring suburb of Burpengary is Burpengary Plaza. The Plaza was given a facelift last year and heaps of new shops and eateries opened.
The Burrito Bar; Unit P7, 175-183 Station Rd, Burpengary https://theburritobar.com.au/stores/burpengary/
The Burrito Bar unsurprisingly specialises in Mexican food but with a modern twist: All the expected items are on the menu burritos, fajitas, quesadillas, nachos as are margaritas, tequila, long island ice tea and more. Opening hours are 11am to 9pm so it’s great for lunch or dinner – or both ?
Everything we’ve tried has been great, and the service is very good. Looking forward to going back to try some cocktails!
Sushi Stop; Shop 24B, Burpengary Plaza, 177-183 Station Rd, Burpengary www.burpengaryplaza.com.au/sushi-stop/
One of my top go-tos to grab a quick lunch. Not a huge range but everything they have is very fresh and tasty as well as reasonably priced, and the staff are very nice and friendly.
Sushi Metro; Shop P3, Burpengary Plaza, 167 Station Rd, Burpengary www.burpengaryplaza.com.au/sushi-metro/
If you’re more in the mood for a sit-down option, Sushi Metro is located next to The Burrito Bar on the outside of the actual centre. It has the always fun (unless you’re with a toddler) train as well as an extensive menu to order from using the instore iPads.
Morayfield & Caboolture
Just 10-15 minutes’ drive from North Harbour there are even more tried and tested dining options in the suburbs of Morayfield and Caboolture. Below are two of our favourites.
Korean BBQ; 140 Morayfield Rd www.facebook.com/MeekakBBQ
Delicious and plentiful food at a great price with a good variety of choices. Well worth a visit, would be great for a group or a special night out as you can share and have your own stove at your table.
Caboolture Sports Club: Station Rd, Morayfield www.cabsports.com.au
One of our community partners, Caboolture Sports Club is the perfect place to watch all types of televised sport, enjoy live music, excellent food and is a great venue for the whole family. Take the kids with you and have a meal while you enjoy the game. Or drop them over to the Kids club so you can give the game or your meal your complete concentration ?
The Club goes all out for big televised sporting events and special occasions such as Mother’s Day and there’s even a courtesy bus to get you home safe and sound.
