"Best Kept secret, all the benefits of Springfield at less cost and larger blocks."

I've live here for 6yrs. The opening of the rail station that means you can get to the CBD in 30mins if you get an express train. There are heaps of recreational options that are only going to increase over the coming years as springfield and Augustine Heights grow. Heaps of medical centres that bulk bill, most specialists however are in Ipswich. If you're into Blues music then you have hit the jackpot. The Royal Mail Goodna is a couple of klms away & there is never a cover charge. What I love about it is that the bands start early and finish early. You can have a massive night out and be home to watch the 8.30 movie on the TV. If you are into dining out there are heaps of restaurant at Orion and quite a few in Camira though they are not open long hours. Awesome Indian and Thai food. Excellent choice of

"Great place to buy and with big blocks of land"

I've lived in Camira for over 2 years now and I'm loving it. I know the area very well, having lived in Goodna and Bellbird Park most of my life. Camira is seen as upper class when compared to the surrounding suburbs. Springfield Lakes has helped lift prices a lot over the past decade but as the average size block is only 400sq, Camira will be seen as the better option for people looking for more land value and space. Quite streets, great people, buses running throughout most of the streets, parks and a bushy feel due to the abundant gum trees and open spaces. What more could you ask for?

"The best place to live in QLD"

Camira is a beautiful area and central to Mt Omany, Riverlinks, Grand Plaza and Orion shopping centres and so you have only have 5 10 mins drive to any one of these great sites. While living in a green, clean and friendly and quite environment. Petrol stations are nearby along with great take-aways and convenince stores. Great medical services at nearby Springfield, along with Coles shopping and resturants.

"A great place to live for those you enjoy peace and quiet, close to everything and affordable living"

I have lived in Camira and currently work in the area for Ray White Redbank Plains/Goodna, Camira has always been the place to be from a local’s point of view and with schools close by and only minutes from the new Orion shopping centre you are never too far from amenities.

Camira has a diverse availability of homes ranging from small house allotments to large acreage

This is one suburb you will enjoy calling home…..
