“A year ago we moved over from New Zealand. Out of the hundreds of overwhelming Suburbs to choose from we narrowed it right down to Springfield lakes. One main factor was that we didn’t want to be anywhere near the City but wanted ample amenities that allowed us to do so. We were advised that Springfield Lakes was a part of a grand master plan for Ipswich.”

“I have lived in Springfield from 2010 for a year. Bought a house in Springfield Lakes since 2011 and we live here till now. We love it. The parks are great, nice and big. We have been to many many suburbs and take my daughter with us to the parks, most suburbs parks are just not comparable with Springfield Lakes. So many schools to choose from, no trouble getting to a school, private schools (St. Peters) are cheaper than you pay near the city. Even so, none of them are better schools compared them with schools near Brisbane.”
