Set back from the waters of Moreton Bay, the rural locality of Highvale sits at the base of Mount Nebo and Mount Glorious providing its residents with spectacular views and a peaceful way of life.
Large modern homes and more classic Queenslanders dot the landscape, many surrounded by acres of manicured gardens and inviting swimming pools. Reputable local schools do away with long commutes, and a 30 to 40-minute drive east to Brisbane CBD means that workers can retreat home to paradise in no time.
Being a small suburb with tightly held housing stock makes the neighbourhood even more sought after for those looking for a home away from Brisbane City’s action.
The annual Samford Show held in Highvale’s showgrounds is an immensely popular event held in July each year. Showcasing the best of country life, the show includes equestrian displays, wood chopping, fireworks, and competitions for horticulture, cooking and art to name a few. There are also carnival rides and animal displays for the kids. During the rest of the year, the showgrounds are often used for professional equestrian events and polo cross. There is a strong horse riding community who make use of the area’s picturesque bush tracks.
Rolling green hills, fresh air and plenty of space make for an idyllic environment to raise a family amongst Southeast Queensland’s dramatic scenery.
