Holland Park West is located about nine kilometres south of the Brisbane CBD and has easy access to the City and Gold Coast. The traditional Australian lifestyle is characterised by Holland Park West’s low-set weatherboard houses with large backyards. Also attracting buyers is the excellent variety of services in the area.
Griffith University, shopping centres, schools and the Southeast Busway have all contributed to steady growth in the suburb in recent times. The Southeast Freeway marks the boundary between Norman Park and its neighbour to the west, Tarragindi, and makes the daily commute to the City or Gold Coast relatively accessible. Public and private schools in the surrounding suburbs of Holland Park, Mount Gravatt and Tarragindi complement Holland Park State High School and Marshall Road State School located within the suburb’s boundaries. Local shops are complemented by major retailers located at Garden City Shopping Centre and Westfield Carindale (approximately 10 to 15 minutes away).
Residents are well catered for with a variety of recreational facilities around Holland Park West as well as in neighbouring suburbs. The Toohey Forest Park in Nathan offers residents a large parkland area for picnics and barbeques. In the neighbouring suburb of Mount Gravatt, the view from the top of the Outlook Reserve is spectacular and is a popular vantage point for visitors and residents. Holland Park West has seen steady growth over the last five years and its popularity among young and established families ensures that its future remains bright.
