From sun-kissed parklands to beautiful Moreton Bay, Birkdale has a year-round summer feel. It’s quiet, laidback and promotes an outdoor lifestyle, and with so much to explore – be it by foot, bike or boat – young families to retirees never tire of life by the sea.
Moreton Bay’s vibrant boating culture has water enthusiasts exploring its coastline and many islands, while on land, parks, playing fields and Howeston Golf Course provide locals with plenty of green space. The shopping precinct along Birkdale Road and Mary Pleasant Drive has all the daily amenities, with a selection of cafes, eateries and bars. Birkdale Train Station is also located here, connecting locals with Brisbane in one direction and Cleveland in the other.
Families have access to a great selection of schools, and the homes are highly prized – thanks in part to Birkdale’s varied offering. Many properties are situated along meandering tree-lined streets, with fenced-in yards and backyards perfect for weekend gatherings. But it is the homes that still hold tight to acreage complete with hobby farms, and the waterfront homes along the canal with their private jetty, that give Birkdale that sense of being away from it all.
With Brisbane only an hour away by train or 40 minutes by car, Birkdale is a place for those looking for a slower pace by the sea, but with access to all the conveniences of city living.
