Despite the increase, North Lakes’ performance in the market continues to demonstrate to investors that their money could go further in this liveable community. As a result, 595 houses were sold during this period in an average of 25 days on the market. Some 386 of these sales were for four-bedroom homes, ideal for couples with kids. 

Since its master-planned development for the last 15 years, North Lakes has been ever-expanding as a family-focused location with some emerging draw cards like business parks and lifestyle hubs that give residents the option to never leave. 

Unit Price Growth

The unit market in North Lakes takes up less than five per cent of the property market since most dwelling structures in this suburb consist of detached houses. However, apartments also performed well during this period as they grew by 8.78 per cent from last year with 111 units sold at a median price of $378,000.

Three-bedroom units were highly coveted but sales have been slower compared to houses, as listings took an average of 61 days on market. Most townhouses or apartments in North Lakes are built around the golf course, a location that instantly delivers a lifestyle home for the residents.

Residents here not only have dozens of parks for their recreation but a number of shopping centres, like Westfield and IKEA, for their essentials. Parents also have heaps of options for private or public schools to send their children. 

“Wonderful place to raise kids, family-friendly. Particularly love the prestigious Club North area with Kangaroos often found roaming in the many parks and gardens.”


“Mostly positive and the area has a lot of potential. Just needs more community events and employment opportunities. Too much reliance on the shopping centre as a community hub and it’s very hard to find professional work within the area (I have to commute to the city for my job).”


“Everything you could possibly need. Costco, bunnings, Westfield, Myers , IKEA, Kmart , big w, target, rail at mango hill, major bus station. The Xmas fair that is held each year with fireworks is outstanding for families. Many trendy coffee shops and restaurants. Modern cinema complex and not far from Redcliffe. It’s also a bit cooler than Brisbane as it experiences the coastal breeZes.”
