"A home amongst the gumtrees!!!"

If you love the beauty of nature, watching the birds nest in the 200 year old gum trees, watch the wallabys hop through the bush, love not having your neighbours in your pocket but not far enough to not know them...then come to Greenbank.

Sooo close to all the major roads...Logan Motorway..Gateway and only approx 20-30 k's from the city and about 50k's to the Gold Coast. Perfect position. Springfield is being built now with Orion Shopping centre to be the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere. Park Ridge now also has a bus station in progress.

Don't go to suburbia and pay huge dollars for small amounts of land...come to Greenbank you'll love it. I have for the past 10 years and wouldn't move from Elizabeth Park. Great for the kids and the pets with a fantastic outdoors lifestyle. No obese lazy kids here they all play outside.

sillybear Yes Spring Mountain is a long way out......I chose Elizabeth Park as it is still close to most things. I had a friend at Spring Mountain and her house was 20k's from my place and thats why it shouldn't come under the umbrella of 'Greenbank' cos its not.....nice place but a lot further out. I wouldn't care if I lived further away....I chose to live here for the peace and quiet and the space. Greenbank is a great suburb....all of it!!!!

kitten68 Some times I hate the drive home, but when I drive down Spring Mountain Drive, I don't regret it one bit after 6 years. I love the tranquility and the peaceful weekends. One way in and one way out... Elizabeth Park is nice also.

propertytycoon Princeton Park has all the advantages of "Acreage Living" as well as the convenience of still being close to the city, especiall now there is a City Express Bus. I travel to Brisbane city in no time on the Express Bus to work every day & have a profound feeling of tranquility as I come home to our Princeton Park home. Princeton Park is a newer area near Elizabeth Park

propertytycoon Greenbank is such a large area I feel it should be divided into seperate subdivisions the way Brown's Plains has been.....what are your thoughta??

sillybear It has been split. Elizabeth Park, Princeton Park, New Beith, Spring Mountain, Teviot Downs. The big mistake is that it is always just referred to as 'Greenbank" and as far out as Thompson Road is still Greenbank. The original Greenbank. Boronia Heights used to be Greenbank aswell before they made it into a horrible housing estate. Given why those poor people at Flagstone are in for a surprise when all the suburban houses start going in there. We need more transport though and after 13 years of living here and now with teenagers, I am forever taxing them back n forth. You cant even get a bus to Springfield and we are the next suburb go figure :( These planning geniuses that design have no idea as most would never have lived here and would never ask a local what they might like. I work in Fortitude Valley and it is 28ks from door to door at Eliz Park.

PaulR Quiet weekends are a thing of the past in Spring Mountain, can guarantee there will be a loud, rowdy party most weekends. Along with that, dogs uncontrolled barking and idiots on dirt bikes tearing up their yards make it a pretty unpleasant place at weekends. It's a shame really because it used to be a great place to live.

"A beautiful area of Tranquility not far from the City"

Princeton Park is an area of Greenbank that has a rural lifestyle while not far from the city. Although each 1.25 acre block of land gives you a sense of privacy there is also a great neighbourhood network. There is a city express bus way & a local shopping centre with doctor, dentist, chemist, Woolworths supermarket & take away cafe's
Pros
  • Peace & Quiet
  • Wildlife
  • Room to move

"A world away from the hustle and bustle !!"

(This review is based around the Spring Mountain area). Fantastic community semi-rural aspect. You notice the stress of the day disappear as you enter the estate. Kids running and swimming about in summer, roaring fires and the smoke from chimneys in the winter....A true four season suburb. If you are wishing to stroll to local shops and cafes then this area currently is not ideal. The great flipside to that is there is no traffic issues and no kids loitering around the shops. Peace and Quiet is why people move here. Space to have a great BBQ and space to wander through the bushland escaping all the world's worries. Internet for some streets is still an issue due to infrastructure.

Still so close to everything by car. 40 mins to city, 30 mins to Mt Tamborine and a little more to Gold Coast.

The place to live...

"Escape from everyone here!"

Too many trucks, too many barking dogs, not enough places to walk to/around, not much infrastructure depending on where abouts in Greenbank you are. The new shopping centre is a godsend for those that live near, but not all of Greenbank is near to it.
Great to live here if you're into entertaining - don't have to worry about disturbing the neighbours. However you have to drive if you want to go out on a night - that is frustrating.
Superb for wildlife.
