Browns Plains

Postcode: 4118

Browns Plains is generally used as a name for it and the surrounding suburbs of Hillcrest, Greenbank, Park Ridge, Regents Park and Heritage Park. Browns Plains has been identified in the South East Queensland Regional Plan as an outer city regional centre. Browns Plains is generally perceived as a middle class suburb of Logan although crime has seen an increase with the population increase. It is a centre for western Logan with a large shopping district including Grand Plaza and a small industrial sector.

The Browns Plains Business Area consists of a Light Industrial/Service Centre (on the Western side of the Mt Lindsay Highway) and a major retail precinct. The Browns Plains business precinct straddles the Mt Lindesay Highway, and is easily accessible from the Logan Motorway. For some businesses the highway road frontage provides them with optimal exposure to highway traffic.

The area is a major sub-regional centre that has experienced rapid growth over recent years. Land developments in the precinct have resulted in opportunities for new businesses to establish in or relocate to the area.
