The stunning community attracting aspirational buyers to the north of Brisbane

Finding a location to build the home of your dreams, to be truly connected to your surroundings and be within easy reach of the city, is generally top of mind for most buyers.

For those on the hunt in Queensland, the new community of Kinma Valley, a 45-minute drive, north of the Brisbane CBD, is an absolute gem.

Kinma, meaning ‘awake’ in the local indigenous language. Kinma has been designed for residents to feel a sense of inspiration where they can restore their spirit and thrive.

Kinma Valley, midway between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, will eventually be home to 6,500 residents in 2,500 new homes.

Located in Queensland’s beautiful Moreton Bay region, Kinma Valley is surrounded by natural landscapes and is close to a full range of amenity. It’s precisely what buyers are looking for, according to Ranisha Clarke, Lendlease Managing Director – Communities.

“We know that people want a more relaxed and nature-focused lifestyle, where they can feel truly at home.”

A lifestyle location

The Moreton Bay region is fast becoming the go-to destination for aspirational buyers who want to enjoy the best of both worlds – a relaxed hinterland lifestyle and easy access to the city.

“It’s actually a fantastic location because it’s within an hour’s drive of the Brisbane CBD and you’re close to the Sunshine Coast as well,” shares Anne Flaherty, PropTrack economist.

The scenic Glass House Mountains are nearby and there’s easy access to beautiful beaches and bays for families that love to swim, boat and fish.

However, Kinma Valley is not lacking in urban necessities, given the transport, shops, restaurants, universities, and industrial job hubs nearby.

Flaherty points out the area has all the same bells and whistles as the Gold Coast, although it has managed to fly under the radar and avoid over-development.

The Sunshine State has been a beacon for southern buyers looking for lifestyle, affordability and space.

Even so, the Moreton Bay market has performed particularly strongly in recent times.

“It’s a region that has outperformed Queensland’s property market,” Flaherty shares.

“PropTrack data for the month ending in April shows the Moreton Bay local government area has seen the median price of a house appreciate by 7.1 per cent and 10.2 per cent for units.

“In contrast, the regional Queensland market as a whole has seen house prices fall by 0.9 per cent, and unit prices increase by only 2.5 per cent over the past 12 months.”

Even with property values rising, Flaherty says dwellings, especially new homes in the area, remain at attainable prices – well below the price tags seen in the inner city and the Gold Coast region.

New beginnings

With interest in the area on the up, the new community at Kinma Valley is taking centre stage, gaining attention for its connection to nature.

“Our vision for Kinma Valley is to build a sense of belonging, well-being and connection for our residents, a place that people can call home for generations,” Ms Clarke says.

Once complete, the community is aiming for a 6-Star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, committing 30% of the plan to open areas, including a 31-hectare central green corridor within easy reach of every home.

There are 12 individually-themed parks planned, including a proposed adventure playground that’s taken design inspiration from the local native Sugar Glider.

Healthy outdoor living was an important focus of the design.

There will be a network of walking and cycling paths delivered throughout the community, encouraging residents to have an active and healthy lifestyle and rely less on vehicles.

People moving in don’t have to wait for amenities to arrive with established features already nearby. The Narangba Valley Shopping Centre is just down the road and the postcode has six schools within a 5km radius.

Transport access is also already in place, with the Burpengary Train Station and the Bruce Highway both easily accessible. Ms Clarke says once complete, Kinma Valley will be home to over 6,500 residents.

Building a community

To appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers, from young families to empty nesters, Kinma Valley now offers 2,500 new home sites at various sizes and budgets in the first stages of development.

Its first neighbourhood, Hazelwood, is now on the market, with land prices starting at $332,000*. Stages one and two have now sold out.

For interested home buyers, Ms Clarke says the newly opened sales display on-site in Morayfield is a great place to start:

“We opened in April for people to visit and experience the masterplan community location and consider various housing options that will appeal to buyers with a wide range of budgets and needs.”
