Looking to Buy Property in Australia? Each of North Harbour’s Home Lots Are No More than 325m from our 1000 Acres of Open Space and Parklands!

Queensland’s Best Place to Live

Home buyers chasing property for sale in one of north Brisbane’s best value suburbs have been flocking to North Harbour. North Harbour was named Best Residential Subdivision in Queensland, in the 2018 Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Qld Awards for Excellence. The UDIA’s Judges said North Harbour showed excellence in a number of categories, including planning, community, sustainability, urban design and engineering and had distinguishing features such as our future 1000 acres of open space and parklands (which include our upcoming Heritage Park) that stood out for them.

North Harbour has introduced a new lifestyle destination into the Moreton Bay Region and offers a unique residential development in the rapidly expanding northern corridor between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. The development offers numerous benefits for residents looking to buy property in Australia including the previously mentioned 1,000 acres of open space and parklands (two parks are complete with another three scheduled to be completed in 2019), high speed fibre optic broadband* and natural, reticulated gas to every home.

The proposed 1,000 acres of open space and parklands include walking and bike tracks, Raff Creek eco-corridor, lots of trees (over 60,000 have already been planted) and plenty of play equipment for young and older kids as well as exercise equipment. North Harbour also offers regular, free events including parkrun and yoga. All homes in North Harbour will be within 325m of open space and / or parklands.

North Harbour Heritage Park

The North Harbour Heritage Park is a new community attraction comprising a vast expanse of parkland, river access including a canoe launch / fishing platform and an interpretive centre focusing on the heritage aspect of the North Harbour site.

The Heritage Park is a three-year project which on completion at the end of 2019, will have invested over $3 million, with $1,535,062 of funds coming from the Federal Government through a funding agreement with 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 has been 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 first stages of construction were completed in 2018, including roads and other infrastructure as well as picnic areas with shelters, BBQs, tables and benches and toilet facilities. As work progresses, the team is working to ensure the heritage remains are preserved and available for viewing and enjoyment by the general public.

Project Manager Bryan Finney said, “Construction is progressing well, we expect to start work on the interpretive building in the next few weeks. Work is also progressing on the Park infrastructure which includes a 1.5km walking track around the lake. As part of this work, the archaeologists monitoring construction have uncovered building foundations that were not previously known.

We’re hoping to begin allowing public access by around the middle of the year with an official opening sometime in the second half of 2019.”

Retaining and preserving the historical remnants of the North Harbour site has been an important part of the North Harbour planning process. Following an application process initiated by the developers of North Harbour, the area has been listed and protected on the Queensland Heritage Register since 2011 as a place of Queensland State significance.

North Harbour’s Heritage Expert is Steve Chaddock from Timeline Heritage who is working with a team of archaeologists at the remains of the “Moray Fields” property that was built by George Raff at what is now the North Harbour site. Steve said: “We are looking to carefully record the exposed areas of the old house and its outbuildings and yards so that we can later interpret that to the public and in advance of a tree management program aiming to preserve the State Listed archaeological remains.”

The history of the site will be showcased in a dedicated “interpretive centre” that delivers a ‘mind map’ of the site before it is experienced first-hand by visitors. The centre will present historic photographs, sketches and display objects which will allow visitors to appreciate the stories and significant developments from the past up to the present day.

The Heritage Park area is currently able to be accessed on Saturday mornings at 7.00am for those participating in the free, weekly North Harbour River parkrun. For more information and directions please click here.
