There’s no doubt that Greater Springfield is growing at a rapid rate with new infrastructure and services popping up regularly. Why not take advantage and consider property and building inspections at Greenbank, the suburb next door?
Greenbank is a rural-residential suburb of Logan, located only 12km from Springfield Central where you will find an abundance of parks, water parks and eateries. The Orion Shopping Centre supplies all your essentials and the Brisbane CBD is just a 35 minute drive away.
In the 1880s dairy farming and timber were Greenbank’s main industries and in the 1890s Greenbank Station was divided into farming estates. In August 1951, military authorities resumed large parcels of land in Greenbank and the Greenbank Army Camp began its life. In 1996 the Greenbank Military Training Area was placed on the register of the National Estate and is still in use today, not only as a training facility but as a largely untouched wildlife refuge due to the uncleared land.

First Home Buyer? Our Building Inspector Talks Greenbank
Greenbank has the benefits of big blocks, open spaces, entertainment precincts and easy access local industry. These are big ticks for property buyers and with a median price around the half a million mark, it’s a mix of first and second home buyers lining up at Open Houses. Like other lesser known areas with more famous neighbours, Greenbank is one of those areas where the odd bargain can still be had simply because it’s not a well known name (think Brighton on Brisbane’s north side – lesser known neighbour to the highly desirable Sandgate and Shorncliffe addresses right next door). In areas like Greenbank it pays to know an investment gem when you see it – and to pounce on it fast. To avoid making newbie mistakes, we’ve put together the ultimate guide to your first ever walk through on a property. Walk in there armed with the knowledge you need to move ahead or walk away.
