The current development at Yarrabilba is moving steadily towards Wickham Timber Reserve and Plunkett Regional Park. See satellite image below for reference.
It won’t be long now before Yarrabilba locals will be able to access Plunkett/Wickham protected area by taking a short stroll from their homes.
It will be great to see the new neighbours using the park for bush walking, trail running, mountain biking, dog walking (on a lead) and nature appreciation activities.
There are many access tracks within the reserve to be utilised for recreation activities.
Currently best access is from Quinzeh Creek Road, Chardon Bridge Road, Flesser Road and Pineview Road. Once the development reaches the old Steele Road, road reserve access will be available via several management tracks in this area.
The development is destined to have approximately 15,000 residences built over the next 10-15 years. There is currently just under 2,000 people living in Yarrabilba.
The word on the street is the development is one of the fastest growing developments in the country. This is probably due to a combination of affordable land prices and great location with reasonable access to Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Ipswich and Logan Central.
Yarrabilba is a traditional Aboriginal name in the Yugambeh language meaning – Place of Song.
