Rochedale, in Brisbane’s south, has traditionally been a rural area, home to residential acreage allotments and great tracts of land used by market gardeners.
The area also contains industrial development, including the Brisbane landfill and the Austral Brick Quarry.
Council and developers have recently shown renewed interest in rezoning the area to allow greater residential development, in order to help house Brisbane’s expanding population.
Bordered by Burbank, McKenzie, Rochedale South, Wishart, and Eight Mile Plains, Rochedale residents – mostly families – will find many of the services and facilities they require in neighbouring suburbs.
Garden City Shopping Centre provides major retail services for residents in Rochedale and also has a bus interchange for those seeking public transport to local centres or Brisbane City.
Families are serviced by Rochedale Primary School; surrounding suburbs offer an increased variety of schooling including public and private secondary schools.
The Gateway Motorway is conveniently located and offers residents good access to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, as well as the Brisbane domestic and international airports.
