The Logan City suburb of Springwood is a shopper’s paradise in a mega-convenient location. Sixteen minutes from the Brisbane CBD
and twenty minutes from the Gold Coast
, it’s an excellent halfway point for exploring either of these amazing destinations. Or you can just stay in Springwood and shop up a storm at the local mall, chill at a cafe or relax in a local park. Book your Springwood hotel with us and stay in this affordable town for even cheaper.
Springwood’s name came from brigadier Sam Langford’s 614-acre property. It was intended to be a satellite town on the South East Freeway. Although development began in 1968, the final part of the freeway wasn’t completed until 1985. These days, about 9000 people call Springwood home.
Things to do
Take a trip to the Gold Coast and check out the shopping, beaches, nightclubs and theme parks like Dreamworld and Wet and Wild. Have a great time in Surfers Paradise
or Burleigh Heads
. Or go in the other direction and see the sights of Brisbane
like the South Bank Parklands, Mount Coot-Tha and the Botanic Gardens.
Of course, there’s plenty to do in Springwood too. If you like Swedish furniture then take a walk around the mega-sized IKEA, a five-minute drive away at Slacks Creek. It’s a king-sized store that you can get quite happily lost in for hours. Drop into a shopping mall like Centro Springwood, Chatswood Hills Shopping Centre or Arndale Shopping Centre. There are Thai, Chinese, Indian and many more restaurants throughout Springwood, as well as quiet corner cafes. Wander the tropical garden in Springwood Park, bike along the bike track or make use of the BBQ facilities.
