North Lakes is a very descriptive name for this suburb – it is 25 kilometres north of Brisbane and is dominated by a series of tranquil lakes. But this new satellite city is much more than its simple name suggests
A family-focussed suburb with all of the convenience of a city. A master planned suburb that has everything you could want.
North Lakes only became a suburb in 2006, when it was carved away from Mango Hill. A wound that still hurts some long term residents. The last 13 years has seen massive growth and development, with homes, roads, shops and train lines all being added to the community. With the population growing to almost 22,000 at the time of the 2016 census.
