"Hidden Gem ... nearly :)"

Perfect place to raise a family, generally nice big block of lands (still some 900sqm lands), great investment as Eight Mile Plains is 5 min away and house prices there are +$100,000 more. Beautiful, modern playgrounds and parks, lot's of green (mainly south side/Springwood side of Underwood Rd). Close to Springwood, Sunnybank, Garden City, quick access to City (off peak traffic 15-20min) via M1.
Pros
  • Convinient, freindly, safe and green.
  • Almost a country town atmosphere
  • Friendly community
  • Great place to bring up your kids

"Logan Citys best kept secret"

This is an amazing community, nestled in amongst plenty of farmland, backing on to koala reserves, with some of the best schools in Brisbane within easy reach, and less than 20 kms to the city! If you like shopping, Garden City, Loganholme, Sunnybank and Carindale are all just up the road.

  • Great place to bring up your kids

"Top Spot"

I have lived in and around Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and nothing compares to the nice appeal of Rochedale South. It was a hidden secret until I found out about it from a freind who moved in to the area. I am happy to be in Rochedale South myself now, and have no immediate plans to move.

  • Convinient, freindly, safe and green.

"Friendly community, close to everything and huge potential."

Rochedale South has a friendly community spirit where neighbours catch up at the letterbox or for street barbeques. Everyone is willing to lend a hand if one is needed and strangers will greet you while a smile and a "G'day". There are plenty of parks to walk the dog or take the kids to play with purpose built bike tracks and picturesque pathways through bushland and parks.

Rochedale South is perfectly located with easy access to everywhere in South East QLD with all major motorways converging nearby. The South Easy Freeway provides a quick 15 minute trip to Brisbane CBD (30 minutes in peak hour) and only 45 minutes to the beaches of the Gold Coast. The Gateway Motorway makes a trip to the airport only 20 minutes and a drive to the Sunshine Coast is 1hr and 20 minutes. The Logan Motorway makes a trip to Ipswich only 20 minutes. The South East Busway Station is a 5 minute drive where there is ample parking and buses to Brisbane CBD that can be a 20 minute trip in peak hour (express bus). A busway station is due to commence being built soon in Rochedale South on Underwood Rd which will make public transport even better. Rochedale South is also just over the hill from Springwood, the "CBD" of Logan City, which is a thriving business centre that is ever expanding.

Rochedale South is very popular with first home buyers due to its close proximity to everything and affordability. There is a huge amount of renovation going on in the area as the houses are updated, which is easier to do with brick and tile properties rather than post-war or fibro houses that are slightly closer in to the city. The houses in Rochedale South also tend to be larger than the older style houses nearer the city.

Just up the road in Rochedale, the asking price of an average block of land alone is more than the price of a house and land only 2 minutes away in Rochedale South.
