"Charming and Safe with Express Train to Brisbane"

Big shopping centre being built next to McDonald's commencing mid-2013. This will have a Woolworths. This is a suburb where you can hear the birds in the morning and walk the dog around to the various parks but be a short jaunt away to Brisbane CBD or other metropolitan areas. Neighbours are friendly and suburb is safe. Close to the beach (Gold Coast) and the mountains and rainforest (Mt Tambourine). Great day trip options. Small shopping centre already exists with IGA, gym, Pizza Capers and Subway. New Pacific motorway exit makes getting to Meadowbrook even easier. Minimal motorway noise. Close to Logan motorway as well. Great central location. Logan Hyperdome is 5 minutes by car and has more shopping. If you like Ikea, also a short trip away. Loganlea train station has express train to Brisbane for commuters. High number of residents own homes (including doctors, nurses, teachers from nearby hospital and TAFE). This is a suburb people are starting to discover with great infrastructure. Expect this suburb to do well in the future as Logan and Brisbane grow.

"Magnificent Meadowbrook"

Lived here for few years now, I must say great for modern home living close to major roads motorways highways never be late for work again, public transport is excellent with loganlea train station and bus routes all within a stones throw, great for students with Griffith University, and Metro South Tafe, home of the Logan Hospital, It is very safe here with huge parks at riverdale park and is destined to boom in meadowbrook with major retailer whoolies set to build a new shopping complex in the near future with already existent IGA complex accross the road and 5 min drive to major hyperdome.

"Good safe place to raise a family"

Nice, quiet and leafy suburb on a bend of the Logan river. Good parks and recreation opportunities, no major shopping centre in the suburb but it isn't far to get to one. Large student population on northern side of motorway, the southern side is the better prospect for buyers.

The northern side is mostly rentals and homes are smaller, on tiny blocks and not much parking or street space. This was developed in the early 2000's. The southern side was built mostly in the late 1980s and early 1990s and has a much calmer, peaceful feel to it. Motorway noise is minimal.
