With Kinma Valley’s first land release coming soon, buyers will be able to secure their slice of the region and make their dream home a reality.
Outdoor adventure & nature at your doorstep
Moreton Bay locals are spoiled with the world class natural playground and local wildlife on offer. Outdoors and adventure lovers can explore to their hearts content - take a drive along the mountain roads that snake through dense forest, stopping off at a gourmet cheese factory along the way or enjoy an off-road or island adventure. Residents can enjoy a range of activities including whale watching and dolphin cruises, 4WD off road adventures, or discover destinations like D'Aguilar National Park, Moreton Island and Bribie Island.
With views across to the Glasshouse Mountains and a seamless blend of the built and natural environment, Kinma Valley will be a leafy haven that perfectly captures the Moreton Bay outdoor way of living.
Top notch education
The Moreton Bay region is home to a number of excellent primary and secondary schools; including St Paul’s School, St Eugene College, Narangba Valley State School, The Lakes College, St Patrick’s College and Grace Lutheran College.

Kinma Valley is purposefully positioned with education front of mind. Families can expect all the education support they need with Carmichael College (Prep to Year 12 by 2025) adjoining the site and a further six schools conveniently located within five kilometres.
Healthy living essentials
Health is wealth, and Moreton Bay certainly delivers on this front! The region was recently named Greater Brisbane’s healthiest region in a study by Domain, which rated suburbs on ten health indicators including walkability, access to fresh food and proximity to health facilities.
The region is home to a suite of health specialists across six private hospitals and two public hospitals, with an ongoing $395 million Caboolture Hospital upgrade to ensure facilities continue to meet community needs (Metro North Health, 2022). The Queensland Government is also investing a further $107.5 million in three brand new satellite hospitals (Ms Palaszczuk, Queensland Government), bringing convenient access to the best care, closer to home.
