Living in Logan
- 9 October 2018
More than 320,000 people call the city of Logan home, and the region’s population is growing in popularity each year. Logan is renowned as one of Queensland’s most socially and ecologically diverse areas, playing host to over 217 unique and distinct cultures and a huge variety of native flora and fauna. For these reasons and many more, Logan is fast becoming one of Queensland’s most sought-after destinations for home owners.
Revitalisation of Logan
Logan is a fresh and vibrant city, offering a lifestyle that’s second to none. Bustling entertainment districts, proximity to Brisbane City, and Logan’s beautiful green spaces appeal to tree-changers from near and far.
Many of Logan’s older neighbourhoods have recently undergone a revitalisation, as Logan City Council and the Queensland government continue to dedicate funding to enhancing the region with world-class amenities, attractions, and community spaces, through their joint urban and community renewal partnerships. What’s more, the contemporary master-planned communities located within the Logan area are offering buyers more variety than any other city in Australia.
Young working families can experience the best of both worlds when it comes to work and lifestyle options thanks to Logan’s central location and proximity to Brisbane City, Ipswich, and the Gold Coast. Logan’s own local commercial districts have also undergone somewhat of a rebirth in the last several years, as the population grows and retail, commercial, and manufacturing firms make the most of this thriving community. The major hospitals, plethora of shopping precincts, and ample local schools has seen a growth in both young first home buyers, families, and investors in the area.
Where culture and diversity meet
Logan is home to one of the most culturally diverse populations in the country, with at least 217 different cultural backgrounds represented throughout the region. Logan’s residents proudly celebrate their community’s rich and vibrant lifestyle through various community events, markets, and more. Becoming ever more popular with young families, relocating from across the country and from around the world, Logan’s population is also one of the youngest in the state; with over half of residents aged under 30.
With such a diverse population, Logan enjoys a rich food scene, with countless cafes, restaurants and hotels dotting the area; offering a limitless array of both local and exotic Asian, Indian, and European dining and entertainment options for the whole family.
Of course, no Queensland community would be complete without a great range of sporting activities and local clubs available. Cricket grounds abound throughout the city, as do soccer, football, netball, and tennis facilities. Logan city also boasts several world-class sporting and events facilities, including the Logan Metro Sports and Events Stadium, outdoor recreational areas for water sports, and the much-celebrated Logan Entertainment Centre.
Lush open spaces to call home
The natural surrounds of Logan City are among the most impressive in Queensland. The area boasts over 1,100 environmental and recreational parks, including off-leash dog parks, outdoor exercise facilities, and play equipment. Many hectares of natural bushland are dedicated to wildlife reserves and wetlands which play host to native bird and fish species; while the dedicated waterfront parks dotting the shores of Logan River invite residents and visitors to experience these natural settings.
