Mount Gravatt East

Mount Gravatt East is a Brisbane suburb that is 8 km southeast of the CBD and is sandwiched between Logan Road and the South East Freeway. This leafy, mostly residential suburb was first gazetted as a suburb in 1967.

Growing families are flocking to this suburb due to its proximity to public transport, schools, shops and entertainment facilities. It is an excellent option for commuting workers and families as residential properties here are much cheaper compared to similar properties in suburbs on the north side.

Another one of its many attractions is it is not prone to flooding.
