Moorooka, which is an indigenous word meaning "Place of IronBark" is a vibrant community-minded, multicultural suburb located approximately 8 kilometres south of the Brisbane CBD. Moorooka is a quiet, leafy suburb hosting a mixture of modern architecture, classic pre-war & beautifully renovated timber Queenslander homes and elegant townhouses. With a long history and once a hub during World War II, Moorooka now caters for growing young families with a range of primary, secondary & private schools in close proximity in addition to easy transport options for a quick trip to the city or the nearby Mount Gravatt & Nathan campuses of Griffith University. Moorooka has a thriving multicultural business district called "Moorvale" being home to over 100 businesses that operate in the trendy centre of town and is also home to what was the largest Queensland Woolworths Supermarket which opened in 1972 and is still in operation. Other major shopping districts such as Westfield's Garden City and a number of hospitals are also within a short drive.
Moorooka possesses a wealth of parks dotted throughout the suburb along with hidden café gems and a wide variety of restaurants and take-away options. With Toohey Forest stretching across much of its eastern border, there are plenty of hiking tracks available for those keen on bush walking or simply strolling through natural bushland on the weekends to take in the beautiful suburb and surrounding views. For those lucky enough to have their homes dotted amongst the scenic elevated parts of Moorooka, they are blessed with glimpses of the CBD and stunning sunset views that stretch out to Mount Coot-tha. Being a growing suburb that has seen compound annual growth of 5.2% and an increase in home values of 29% over the last five years, Moorooka is not only a great suburb to live in but certainly one on the rise.
