North Harbour Parks and Community Facilities are the Best in Southeast Queensland!

1000 Acres of Open Space and Parks

North Harbour’s proposed parks and community facilities 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.

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 play, 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 is also the home of our free weekly yoga class, Sunrise Yoga in the Park.

Riparian Park: Riparian Park opened in May 2019 and is already extremely popular having hosted the inaugural community cricket match between neighbourhood streets! With 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.

The 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.

The Heritage Park is the site of the original “Morayfields” settlement which dates from 1861 and was the first European settlement in the district.

The Heritage Park is a community attraction and has taken several years to develop, costing over $3M with $1,535,062 of funds coming from the Federal Government through a funding agreement with our community partner, the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology. Funding is through the Community Development Grants programme, provided through the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.

The $1,535,062 Grant is being matched by North Harbour. The Abbey Museum and North Harbour are also working in partnership and providing significant “in-kind” support through project planning, project management, post-construction operation and maintenance.

The heritage aspects of the old site are being combined with a vast expanse of parkland including pathways and tracks for use by residents and visitors, allowing everyone to enjoy our slice of Queensland history and the Caboolture River. The first stages of construction have been completed including roads and other infrastructure, picnic areas including shelters, BBQs, tables and benches and toilet facilities. Our fishing platform / canoe launch and heritage centre will be next to be completed and the Heritage Park is proposed to open in late 2019.

The Heritage Park area can be accessed on Saturday mornings at 7.00am for North Harbour parkrun. For more information and directions please click here.

10 Reasons Your Next Home Should be a House and Land Package at North Harbour

What’s a House and Land Package?

A “house and land package” is when the developer (North Harbour) who is selling land, asks a builder to provide an example of one of their designs which would fit on a particular block which adheres to covenant and building regulations i.e. space either side of the front of the house and so on. The developer and builder then package the house design and the land together into a House and Land Package.

The aim of these house and land packages is to give buyers a clear idea of what is achievable with certain blocks and particular house designs. Our usual recommendation to new visitors to North Harbour is to first choose the type of house you would like and then return to the Sales and Information Centre to discuss available land for sale which will work with your choice of design. As we already know that house and land packages supplied by our builder partners work with our covenants and building requirements, choosing a house and land package can streamline and simplify this process, particularly if you are a first home buyer or have bought before but are now looking to build for the first time.

House and land packages

House packages come with a variety of inclusions from basic requirements up to marble benchtops and top of the range cookers. Each builder offers a range of different packages to suit a range of needs and budgets. To find out more about living at North Harbour click here to see our available house and land packages.
