Cornubia

 

Postcode:4130  |  Distance To Brisbane CBD: 31 KM

 

 

Cornubia is a suburb situated 30 kilometres south-east of Brisbane. The nearest largest landmark is the Logan Hyperdome shopping centre - one of the largest undercover shopping malls in Queensland. Cornubia is close to major shops (Logan Hyperdome) and first class educational institutions (John Paul College, Calvary Christian College). Many street names reflect its lush bush setting (e.g. Sugarwood, Parkview). Cornubia is the Latin name for Cornwall.

Fauna
Cornubia is part of the Koala Coast and is home to hundreds of Australian native animals including koalas, wallabies, goannas and various species of birds (e.g. rainbow lorikeet).

Cornubia Forest Nature Refuge
A protected nature conservation area was created by the local government council from land purchased between 1999 and 2010. Located in the north-west of the suburb, the 196-hectare (480-acre) nature refuge consists of the former Cornubia Forest Park to the south and land known as the Cornubia Escarpment in the north. It is managed as part of Australia’s National Reserve System with objectives that include both conservation of flora and fauna, and recreation such as bushwalking and mountain bike riding. The refuge is also managed under a Koala Nature Refuge Agreement with the state government. The tall open forest ecosystem of blackbutt (Eucalyptus pilularis) and the brown thornbill (Acanthiza pusilla) in the area are described as endangered.

Transport
Over 70% of employed people travel by car as most residents work in the city or on the gold coast. Efficient and cost-effective public transport is available in the area and is provided by the Logan City Bus Service, a privately owned company.

Profile

Its combination of rural and urban residences makes Cornubia an attractive suburb for a large variety of people. There is a mix of families and retirees in Cornubia with the majority being owner-occupiers. Cornubia has lots of wide open spaces, especially around California Creek and Mt Cotton roads where a number of upmarket lifestyle properties can be found. Other homes in the main streets are often clad in hardiplank or weatherboard while a number of brick and tile units also available in the area. One of the suburb's most spectacular features is the Cornubia nature reserve. The waterlily-covered lagoon was once a quarry but the area has regenerated over time and is now home to a variety of wildlife, ranging from larger mammals such as koalas and wallabies, to water birds and smaller aquatic life. Native ducks often feed amongst the waterlilies. There are eight primary and secondary schools in the area with a variety of sporting clubs, including Cable Ski World Logan, also nearby. The Logan Hyperdome is the retail centre, and a major employer, for the area and is located alongside the Pacific Motorway.
