"Good value, good access"

A good suburb with an extensive new development. Affordable, green, with parks and recreational facilities. Good shopping options in Richlands and in Inala next door. Many affordable eating-out places, especially in the adjacent Inala. Very good access via motorways and public transport, including the new train station. Doctors (many bulk bill), schools, childcare - all nearby either in Richlands or in Inala. Inala also has three post offices, TAFE, gym at PCYC, large Buddhist temple, sports ovals, and old parks with beautiful big trees.
