Mount Gravatt East – South Brisbane’s Hidden Gem

Nestled among hills and flat lands is Mount Gravatt East, lined with leafy trees and a rising number of townhouses. Four major roads run through the suburb: Logan, Cavendish, Newnham, and Creek. The suburb is 9km away from Brisbane CBD and is in the same district as neighbouring Mount Gravatt, where the Griffith University campus is located.

Residents have said that they enjoy the convenience of more upscale neighbourhoods, but without the hustle and bustle. Two major shopping centres Carindale and Garden City are just a five-minute drive away. Big chain stores like Bunnings can be found here along with trendy, indie style shops. Meanwhile, not too far away are Mt. Gravatt Plaza, the Farmer’s Market, and the Mount Gravatt Showgrounds as well as the Australian Institute of Advanced Studies. Families and dog-lovers will be delighted by the parks, off-leash areas, and the Mount Gravatt East Aquatic Centre. A good number of schools in the area will have parents and university students at ease.
