Driving around Logan Central today I would never move there. Streets and streets filled with shabby houses all with junk through out their yards! Normal people don't live like that lol no where in Logan that I saw looked appealing to be honest. The only appeal to the city is that it is inbetween Brisbane and the GC but I would be too scared to move there myself, I couldn't stand living next to people yelling and screaming etc all day. I'm sure there are good parts to the city but I can't tell you where lol

I am out numbered here on the negative, but my husband, myself and our gorgeous 3 year old son live in Logan Central. We bought our first property here in 2007, our second in 2009. Then sold our first to try and avoid another rental in the area. We love it. Great neighbors, close to everything. 2 minutes from the pacific hwy and Logan motorway.
I was a bank manager for 12 years when purchased here and now a stay at home mum - could not have had that blessing had we bought elsewhere with a large mortgage. My husband has a trade. I have had no trouble what so ever and I am home with my son daily. We walk to the shops, have spent 100k on our renovations with no fear of over capitalizing as we don't plan on moving. the mortgage is small enough to have many lifestyle options.

I believe it starts with the people living here / buying here to start telling it how it really is living here. I love it!! Logan is a very large area, the news always says Logan when something goes wrong....yet they will state the Brisbane suburb name. It does not help the area of Logan and a good story doesn't sell.
Yes there are some bad little pockets, though I have to admit, in the last 10 years, I have seen a huge improvement with these pockets as well. resident are saying no to these kinds of behaviors and are calling the police on any socially unexceptionable behaviors and this is making a difference.

So please don't consider this suburb as an investment, rather than an affordable option to live. You will not regret it.

I personally think it's not safe living here. One of my friend bought a property here last year on Garfield road and got broken onto twice. like anyone else answering this question definitely not safe for families with children. But i believe this place will be worth quiet bit of money in 15 years time. Right time to buy a invesment property as properties are so cheap compared to nearby suburbs like underwood, Kuraby even Marsden.

It has a stigma but I let facts speak for themselves. We have a townhouse in Logan Central and never ever had a problem. Never been broken into, our tenant is fantastic and they've never had issues. I think the place you live in is what you choose to make of it - and there's a lot going for this area if your judgement isn't prejudiced.

KEEP RIGHT AWAY FROM THIS GHETTO!!!!!
Unless you have no choice, or a death wish DONT live here. It is FULL of crime, muggings, junkies, "wannabe violent youth gangs", substance use by kids, drinking of alcohol in pubic places even during the day, domestic violence, HUGELY multicultural, & it is now so OVERCROWDED that they are taking over Marsden which used to be a NICE area untiL abut a year or so ago. I CANT wait to sell your house & shift the hell out of this BOGAN scum hole!!!!

HECK NO! I have been here a month and I don't feel safe even taking my toddler to ANY of the parks or even to go for a walk. Just today, I got the courage to take her to a nearby park...BIG mistake! We were stalked by 2 junkies with alcohol in hand, telling us to effing leave. DO NOT live here, especially if you have children!

mem5 I don't live in Logan (thank goodness) but today we went to Mabel Park which is a pretty good Park and the kids there were nice and playing well together and there were even older teenagers there that were happy including 7 year olds in their soccer they were playing. I don't know if you've tried that Park and maybe we just went on a good day but I'd recommend it to you if you haven't already been!

In my opinion, No. It's known as a 'bogan' suburb and has high crime rates. Not good for families. I would NOT recommend it.
