Celebrating its 30th birthday this year, Springfield (a 35-minute drive from Brisbane CBD) is home to 50,000 people. With all the amenities and services of a big city, Springfield Rise, a new suburb of Greater Springfield, has just released land lots – only a 4-minute drive from Springfield centre.
Springfield Rise, located 35 minutes southwest of Brisbane, delivers for buyers’ needs and desires.
Ian Murray, Head of Queensland Communities Lendlease says Springfield Rise presents a unique opportunity for buyers.
“Its location and connection to convenience and community make it a highly desirable place to call home,” he says.
For people looking for more than just a house, here are five reasons to get excited about Springfield Rise.
1. Surrounding nature
Buyers don’t just look for urban environments to call home, they also seek locations with fantastic, natural outdoor spaces.
Cameron Kusher, executive manager of economic research at realestate.com.au, says features like parks, sports grounds and nature reserves all add appeal – which Greater Springfield is teeming with.
“There’s been a lot of new development going on in Greater Springfield in the past few years, but it still has quite a lot of greenery,” Kusher explains.
“There’s a big lake in the middle, part of the Springfield Lakes project, which has a fair amount of open space surrounding it.”
The area also has pockets of bushland, conservation zones, and an extensive choice of sporting fields sprinkled throughout, like Silver Jubilee Park (due to open in April) which will offer sporting fields, four dedicated basketball courts, two multi-use courts, fully covered playgrounds with bathroom facilities, walking paths and bbq areas.

Kusher adds that there are plenty of new plantings being carried out in the newer neighbourhoods popping up around Springfield Rise – meaning it’s a location that will be alive and thriving for years to come, with so many local parks and easy access to White Rock – Spring Mountain Conservation Estate.
People of all fitness levels can enjoy the outdoors with walking trails varying in length and difficulty and ranging from an easy 200-metre walk to the challenging 19-kilometre round-trip trail.
