Upper Brookfield, Where Every Day is a Holiday

UPPER BROOKFIELD

It is very much apparent that the air in Upper Brookfield is clean and different compared to that of the city, making it hard to believe that it is only 25 minutes away outside, 15 minutes to Indooroopilly and 10 minutes to Kenmore’s major shopping centers.

Upper Brookfield is the perfect place for kids to play in creeks, ride horses, walk the roads safely and play outdoor games and do other stuff other than play video games. It is a growing community that is gradually thriving.

Did you know that Upper Brookfield is the last fortress of protected Valley in Brisbane? And it seems like the local community would like to keep it that way as no plans for industrialisation is currently in the works. There are no cellphone towers, highways, railways, tunnels and quarries as of yet but you can still have access to these developments just a few minutes of drive away.

For now, the suburb limits the allowed block size to 25 acres only, which is why owning a land here is a privilege.

Upper Brookfield is best for families or couples who prefer to live simply and quietly but still want to work in the city.
