Carbrook QLD


Postcode: 4130

Carbrook is a suburb of Logan City, Queensland, Australia.

Carbrook is an aesthetically pleasing rural suburb located in the south eastern part of Logan City, bordering on the southern region of Redland Shire, and just 30 minutes south of the central business district of Brisbane and 40 minutes from Surfers Paradise. Carbrook is within easy access of the Pacific Motorway and it is situated only about 7 minutes to the major shopping precinct of the Logan Hyperdome.

The residents of Carbrook enjoy a semi-rural lifestyle mostly on large acreage properties. There is also a small residential development made up of 5 acre blocks. The Logan River, a major feature of Carbrook, flows along the common border between Logan City and Gold Coast City. It runs the length of Carbrook and there are a number of recreational areas, parks, boat ramps and a jetty, that provide easy access to the river.

For 125 years the local school has played a staring role in the Life of Carbrook, and together with a number of century old farmhouses the near 100 year old original Carbrook Primary School building has enhanced the character of Carbrook.

An outstanding feature of the area is the Carbrook wetland which has been designated as an area of national importance in the Directory of Important Wetlands in Australia. The wetland attracts a variety of waterfowl and other marsh birds and is a bird watchers paradise.
