"Great community spirit"

The people are lovely and have a great community spirit. Even the local police beat gets involved in Christmas and Halloween activities and drops by the school to say hi to the kids. Some of the higher density living areas like the streets with lots of town houses tend to cop a bad wrap. But my street is mostly owner occupied and everyone seems to have a lot of house pride and keeps their yards maintained. As well as you'll always get a friendly wave as you drive past each other on the street. There is a lovely walking track through the nature strip. Lots of kids riding around on their bikes and scooters on the weekend and there is a local skate park next to the football club. ive never had any issues with children in the area; all the ones ive come across have been very polite. The local shops are in need of some tlc but they have the best sushi around and the couple that owns the fish and chip shop will give you a warm welcomming if you're a regular, which makes up for the shabby exterior in my opinion. The local spar is over priced like any convenience store but woolworths at holmview is right across the main road at the end of Castille Cres. The Holmview shops have some really good resturants and a great little bakery. Beenleigh shops are only an extra 5 minute drive away if you need a Big W or a sneaky slice of Cheesecake from the Cheesecake shop.
Could do with some more bus services in the area to be fair but there is always the train line if you dont mind not being on the express line. Otherwise, Beenleigh station again is a five minute drive away and is on the express line or Logan hyperdome is a 12 minute drive away and has multiple express bus lines to the city.

The only bad things I can honestly say about the area is unfortunately its reputation proceeds it. Beenleigh and Logan in general have unfortunately been stuck with a reputation that is quite frankly outdated and narrow minded.

And 2. There arn't a lot of options in the way of academically exceptional public schools. Most public schools in the area are pretty dissapointing but in saying that the parents who send their kids to Edens Landing rave about how much their kids love it there.

"A small and dingy suburb"

I have lived in Edens landing for about 6 years and it's quiet but too quiet. It has a train station but Queensland rail does not care about it, it never is clean, not enough undercover areas and the trains always get cut if there is a big event. The local shops are appalling, they close down all the time and the spa only sells items that are out of date. The local doctor is a quack only gives you quick fixes that doesn't work and has an in and out approach to treating patients. Don't get me started on all the town houses that look like they were built 20 years ago, filled with renters that look like they belong in Logan central and they leave their bins on the road side all week long. I would recommend avoid living here!!

"Edens Landing"

I have lived in the area for 19 years and it has changed over that time. Many of the middle class families have moved on and it has increasingly become a rental hub. I have had 30 neighbours in the time I've lived at the current property. People generally have become noiser and more disrepectful of their neighbours. Despite there being ample parks with good facilities and recreation grounds nearby, kids continue to play in the streets causing issues. The area has plenty of facilities but the area is best described as a blue collar worker area. I have stayed mainly because of access to public transport and it is the prettiest suburb around.

"Nice Suburb to live in"

I've lived in Edens Landing for nearly 2.5 years and we have found it to be a nice area. The suburb has great public transport, trains and buses and there are local shops (A medical centre, supermarket, bakery, fish and chip shop, hairdresser, newsagent and thai take away). There is a sports field with a football club and public gym equipment around the football field walkway which is located next to the train station. I have found our street (Holliday Drive) to be a friendly and relatively quiet one. We live close enough to public transport to utilise it if we wish (without living too close, i.e. noise etc) and we have no plans on moving any time soon.
