A Suburb Profile of Browns Plains, Logan

Looking for the perfect suburb to call home? We’re here to help. In this post, we share a brief suburb profile of Browns Plains. Browns Plains is full of older homes, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a future. Many older homes are being renovated and at Roo Roofing we can help when it comes to roof restoration and replacement.

Originally called ‘Browns Plains’ because it was once the designated land for grazing cattle, Browns Plains is now a suburb of Logan. 

It is close to Brisbane CBD, only 22km south. Browns Plains is also a terminus for Brisbane city bus routes, making it an important transport hub connecting Logan city and Brisbane city buses. The present suburb of Browns Plains extends from Mt Lindesay Highway to Scrubby Creek, with Browns Plains Road as its west-to-east axis.

There's lots of commercial opportunities and many job creation projects in the area. With Grand Plaza Shopping Centre and a transport hub, this is a very well located suburb.

The Housing Market

As of June 27, 2019 stats show that to buy a house costs approx. $365,000 and as of July 23rd, 2019 stats show it’s relatively cheap to rent a one-bedroom place, at $350 per week.

Low house prices mean that it's easier for new homeowners to enter the market and renovations are more achievable! You can build a swimming pool or renovate the kitchen, or if it's need of repair, give yourself a whole new roof.
