Springwood

Springwood, a suburb in Logan City, is 19 km from Brisbane City. Before the arrival of European settlers, the area was inhabited by indigenous people from the Jaggera and Yugambeh language groups.

The town centre in the north-west along the Pacific Motorway is where a lot of commercial activity happens. An area unofficially called Chatswood Hills in the south-east is where many commercial developments are also happening. The rest of Springwood is composed of middle-class residential areas.

Springwood is a quiet, family-friendly suburb and lots of green space. Every amenity you need is near, such as schools, transport and shops, and is close enough to the coast for weekends at the beach.
