Greater Springfield is one of Australia’s most ambitious master-planned cities. Located just east of Ipswich, and within a half hour drive of Brisbane’s CBD, the area covers a total of 2,860 hectares – almost six times the size of Sydney’s Parramatta.

With two rail stations, and direct, non-stop access to Brisbane airport, Greater Springfield’s vision is to become a world-class regional city and services hub by 2030. By the time development is complete, an expected $85 billion will have been spent on infrastructure and commercial and residential construction.
