Logan is an up-and-coming city that encompasses quite a few suburbs, including Bahrs Scrub, Logan Central, and Woodridge, just to name a few. The area is currently undergoing a quiet but sweeping change as more and more pockets of it are further developed, making Logan a sought-after location for first-home buyers and investors. Another major draw for the area is the fact that, quite often, it actually costs less in the long term to own your own property than to rent, which is basically unheard of throughout most of Queensland.

Things we love…
- The large swathes of parkland and open spaces in Logan are great for residents of all ages to enjoy — from children to grandparents.
- The incredibly diverse community means that there are people from all walks of life and all backgrounds in Logan: 7.9% come from New Zealand, 5.4% from the UK, and nearly 11% from non-English speaking backgrounds.
But remember that…
- Logan is 20 kilometres from Brisbane CBD and traffic commuting to and from the city can experience heavy delays at peak times.
- Logan is still an up-and-coming area, meaning that some areas are undergoing changes and development.
- Quite a lot of construction will be happening over the coming years, especially in house and land estates, so residents may have to deal with alternative driving and bus routes and such in some areas.
