North Harbour’s suburb of Burpengary East is one of north Brisbane’s best value suburbs. It’s close to shops, schools, transport, entertainment, sporting facilities and restaurants and has a great community feel in a semi-rural area. It’s located halfway between the Sunshine Coast (30 minutes to Caloundra) and Brisbane CBD (45 minutes depending on traffic) in the very sought-after northern corridor. North Harbour has five parks, 6km of riverside mountain bike trail, a café, childcare centre and more to come.
Using the First Home Owners Grant at North Harbour has given a lot of first home buyers the chance to get onto the property ladder with a brand-new home in a great area. Residents Kelly and Justin built their first home at North Harbour. “We are both very particular with our tastes, we had certain items on our wish-list that could not be met by established homes within in our price range.”
Fellow first home buyers Tiarna and Zac have three children and found they could build their perfect family home at North Harbour. “Building your own home is every person’s dream and at North Harbour we could do that. We could customise our home to exactly how we wanted it and at North Harbour it was affordable.”
