Burpengary East

Houses for sale in Burpengary East are being snapped up in record time by eager buyers, keen to enjoy the excellent amenities, location and relaxed living this great suburb enjoys. Not only are established homes selling extremely quickly, land for sale in Burpengary East and house and land packages near Caboolture are also in high demand.

North Harbour has been a big driver of this demand; the rate of sale of our blocks of land, Terrace Homes and Villa World house and land packages and established houses for sale in Burpengary East (North Harbour’s suburb) has exceeded even the local market expectations. 

“The amenities, quality homes and lifestyle on offer here have encouraged buyers from all over Australia to make the move to North Harbour,” said Project Director, Bryan Finney. 

“With more people than ever working from home we have noticed a real drive to move out of the city and into more lifestyle orientated developments like North Harbour.

“We’re 10-15 minutes from major employment hubs, close to schools and shops and there are plenty of local recreational options to enjoy from sport to art, dining to boating.”

1000 Acres of Open Space and Parks

One of the main drivers of our record sales has been the amount of open space and parkland at North Harbour. Our proposed parks and community facilities will cover more than half of the North Harbour site at a total of 1000 acres, an area approximately the size of 600 football fields. Each park in North Harbour has something unique to offer and is designed to connect through bike and walking tracks as part of the North Harbour masterplan. We currently have five parks open with one more planned to open in late 2021. 

The Village Park: The Village Park was the first park to open at North Harbour in 2015 and offers play equipment suitable for older and younger children, plenty of space to run around in, BBQ and picnic shelters, and free Wi-Fi! The Village Park is also the home of Cam’s Boot Camp and is a popular central meeting place for families in our community. 

Reflections Park: Reflections opened in 2017 and is located at the western corner of North Harbour, adjacent to Raff Creek Eco-Corridor. With play equipment for younger children, Reflections has plenty of flat space around for playing, and fitness equipment for adult use. 

Riparian Park: Riparian Park opened in May 2019 and offers a flying fox, heaps of play equipment, fitness equipment and half basketball court. Riparian Park also continues the stretch of bike tracks and walking tracks along Mornington Parade which begin at Reflections Park. 

Habitat Park: Habitat Park opened in June 2019 and offers two off-leash dog areas with doggy play equipment. Habitat Park also includes play equipment for kids, fitness equipment, BBQs and shelters and wetlands. 

Heritage Park: One of the most exciting and unique parts of the North Harbour masterplan is our Heritage Park which is located along the banks of Caboolture River. Heritage Park offers a riverside mountain bike track and walking trails, as well as a chance to visit and learn about the heritage remains from the early European settlement of the area. There are also picnic spots, amenities and BBQs for community use.
