North Harbour is a great place to choose to call home. This master planned new neighbourhood north of Brisbane in the burgeoning suburb of Burpengary East has been designed to provide all the amenities required for modern day living: plenty of open space and parks (1,000 acres – larger than Central Park in New York!) including future Heritage Precinct with river access for launching canoes and fishing (and a proposed marina for larger vessels), fibre optic cable for fast internet, reticulated gas and close proximity to many great places to eat, drink and shop.
The North Harbour team even provides weekend activities for the fitness conscious: Saturday parkruns around the future Heritage Precinct, and Sunday yoga in Reflections Park which is located opposite Raff Creek eco-corridor.
While the North Harbour development’s history doesn’t quite stretch back to the Mediaeval era, there is a lot of history to be found locally as the site was one of the first settlements in modern Queensland. North Harbour, in partnership with The Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology, is building an interpretive centre to allow the significant historical features remaining from the “Moray Fields” settlement to be publicly accessible for the first time since European settlement.
Work on the future Heritage Precinct includes constructing public access and parking, an interpretive building, walking trails, signage and picnic facilities to allow visitors and residents access to this important historic site. A canoe landing will also provide access to the Caboolture River.
The team is working hard on construction of the second Display Village and brand-new Sales & Information Centre which will include a play area for kids and a café.
To find out more about North Harbour visit the Sales & Information Centre and Display Village (with 35 display homes) which is open seven days a week, 10am-5pm on the corner of Buckley Road and Moreton Bay Boulevard in Burpengary East.
