"Great location - situated between 3 large SEQ cities"

Not sure why schools is listed as 'Not great for' but maybe those reviews were old... a significant number of schools have been built recently, it's also worth noting the existing St. John's for some years has consistently been one of the better OP producing schools in QLD (top 40).

My favourite part of the suburb is the location, I have family that work in Brisbane, myself in Logan, and partner in Ipswich, Heathwood is a short drive to all of those places or even bus journey/train ride because like most new suburbs it has a lot of public transport options. In addition to that it's only 40ish minutes to the GC. Not a lot of high-end shopping options but at least it's a short drive to mt. om, indro, even the upcoming orion (15 minutes).

"Brand new homes and very quiet"

Love the fact the homes are all new, no dumps like inner city suburbs. Suburb is very quiet, those who live on the boundaries may hear the toll road. We don't hear a thing. No shopping centres and only one restaurant but of no concern to us, if we want these we drive to Mt Ommaney, Indooroopilly or the city.
Pros
  • Bigger yards
  • New homes
  • Quiet
Cons
  • Very few amenities

"Nice new houses with less bogans than Forest Lake"

Have lived in Heathwood for 6 months now. Previously lived in Forest Lake. Forest Lake houses are too close together, are too small, have no yards and the streets are like rabbit warrens. And there are so many bogans in Forest Lake. Houses in Heathwood are all fairly new with big yards. Much more respectable people in Heathwood. If you want nightlife, go to the city. Only a short drive to Forest Lake and the better shopping centers at Mount Ommaney and Indooroopilly.

"Great Place to Live"

I live in the best street in Heathwood, Ironbark Place. We have lived here for over three years after moving from Forest Lake and find it very quiet and friendly and would recommend Parkwood to anyone.
