Before we kick off with what’s new at North Harbour this week – a last reminder to First Home Buyers who want to get their hands on $20,000 of FREE financial support from the Queensland Government.
If you want to be eligible for the First Home Buyer’s Grant contact your chosen builder NOW and ask if there is still time to sign contracts. Unfortunately, many builders have stated that time has now run out for them to get contracts done and dusted by the cut-off date of June 30th but there are a few builders in Property North Brisbane who have said they can do something IF PEOPLE CONTACT THEM THIS WEEK AT THE LATEST!
So, if you’re eligible for the Grant and in a position to buy this week – please head to the North Harbour Sales Office so we can help you through the process as swiftly as possible.
As a reminder, the First Home Buyers Grant is a $20,000 one-off financial grant only available to those buying their first home in Australia who meet all the eligibility criteria aimed at helping First Home Buyers get onto the property ladder.
Eligible recipients must be:
– at least 18 years old
– purchasing a new property under $750,000
– an Australian Citizen or permanent resident
– receiving the grant for the first time.

Good luck and if you don’t manage to get your paperwork in by the cut off – never fear, North Harbour has you covered with some of the best Property Pricing Brisbane has to offer. For more information on House and Land Packages at North Harbour visit https://www.northharbour.com.au/house-land/.
Now, on to some exciting news from us – the development team has announced that a third new park will start construction at North Harbour later this year bringing our total to three resident parks in 2018.
As we mentioned in a previous Blog, construction has commenced on our second park, Reflections Park. Our first park, the Village Park, opened in October 2015 at the end of Moreton Bay Boulevard. The Village Park incorporates two areas of play equipment to suit both older children and pre-schoolers and has Wi-Fi, shelters, drinking fountains (for people and pets) and BBQs on 6000m2 of beautifully landscaped space.
Very popular with both residents and visitors, the Village Park has become the centre of North Harbour’s community playing host to many events, birthday parties, playdates, boot camps and much more.
Our latest park, named Reflections Park, will be located on the south-western side of North Harbour near the Raff Creek Environmental Corridor just south of Stages 15 and 16 (which are now selling). It will include play equipment aimed at young children (different to the Village Park to give residents lots of choice), BBQs and shelters. This Park will also offer exercise equipment in fitness stations which will provide our residents with the opportunity for free workouts in beautiful surroundings.
The name Reflections Park has been chosen due to the extensive water around the park including Raff Creek and an area of environmental wetland. The park will also incorporate a public art piece by Simone Eisler – the design of the piece also inspired the choice of the name “Reflections”.
The landscaping contractor is Interface Landscapes which has undertaken all the landscaping work at North Harbour to date. (All the park construction is being completed by the North Harbour development team.)
North Harbour boasts the largest area devoted to open space and parklands within the northern corridor. Our open space and parklands area will span 1000 acres. Extensive bike and walking tracks will give residents plenty of options for exercise and fun activities. Also included in our masterplan are proposed playing fields, a sporting complex and a heritage precinct which will complement the water based activities provided by our 9km of Caboolture River frontage and access to Moreton Bay.
Our Project Director, Peter Lightbody, said: “We’re excited to bring our residents some more excellent park facilities, Reflections Park will be located close to our current land releases being Stages 15 and 16.
We’re aiming to have Reflections Park ready to go in late 2017 and we will provide updates on progress and openings nearer the time.”
Our third park, Riparian Park, will be located near Stages 18 and 19 and include play equipment aimed at older kids such as a flying fox and basketball half court. It will also incorporate shelters, BBQs and fitness equipment. Riparian Park will start late 2017 for completion early 2018.
Lots to look forward to! Have an excellent week ?
