Cornubia QLD


Postcode: 4130

Cornubia is a suburb of Logan City, Queensland, Australia. It is situated 29 kilometres south-east of Brisbane. The nearest largest landmark is the Logan Hyperdome shopping centre – one of the largest undercover shopping malls in Queensland.

Cornubia is considered one of the most sought after suburbs in Logan City due to its bush setting and closeness to major shops (Logan Hyperdome) and first class educational institutions (John Paul College).

Many street names reflect its lush bush setting (e.g. Sugarwood, Parkview). Cornubia is the Latin name for Cornwall.

Cornubia is part of the Koala Coast and is home to hundreds of Australian native animals including koalas, kangaroos, goannas and various species of birds (e.g. Rainbow Lorikeet).

As of 2001, the population of Cornubia was around 3300. 10 years prior there were only 2000 people in the area. The suburb has a young population (median age of 35). About 6% of people are unemployed. Over 70% of employed people travel by car which reflects the lack of efficient and cost-effective public transport. All public transport in the area is provided by Clarks’ Buses, a privately owned company.

After English (90%), the most spoken languages are Dutch and German.
