"Great Peaceful Ffamily Location"

Moved in 12 months ago from Sydney. It is a great change, the area is quiet and friendly, with shops less then a 5 minute drive away (which is not any worse then Sydney's western suburbs with traffic). Schools are well setup and my daughter likes it a lot more then Sydney's packed schools. The area is developing very fast with new roads and shops being built on a regular basis. The only downfall is no public transport and terrible internet access, even though we are supposed to get NBN in the next 12 months.
Pros
  • quiet
  • friendly area
  • great value for money
Cons
  • terrible internet
  • no public transport

"Great Acreage Lifestyle"

South Maclean is located south of North Maclean funnily enough. The feel of both these suburbs is very homogenous and they share a lot of similarities. It is a great place for people looking for a bit of a change of lifestyle into acreage living. Relatively close to both Browns Plains and Jimboomba town centres this is a leafy and quiet suburb that neighbours the Logan River. There's plenty of acitvity in the area with the highway upgrades that are very much a constant now and the continued growth of the commercial side of Jimboomba. Definitely worth a look for any acreage lovers out there.
