The area is usually associated with most suburbs east of the south-east motorway and west of the Redlands. Having great access to both Moreton Bay as well as the CBD, it houses a large percentage of white collar workers.
Mostly low density housing dominates the area with many pockets of acreage stiil scattered throughout. Many developers have recently built new housing estates in this area which has brought many 2nd and 3rd time buyers to the region.
As one travels toward the city, many low rise apartment blocks have sprung up catering for the ever growing population.
The region hosts many of the world top athletes when they compete at the Sleeman sports centre, which was initially built to host the 1982 commonwealth games. The venue still has international facilities and hosts a wide range of sports.
