34 kilometres south of Brisbane CBD and previously known as a great linking town between various locations throughout Queensland, Beenleigh has progressively become an important business centre within its own right over the past few years.
Although most people choose to drive to the city with easy access to the Pacific Motorway, public transport networks are also highly developed with frequent services to Brisbane and the Gold Coast via Beenleigh railway line and the centrally-located Beenleigh railway station.
The suburb has specifically been developed to transcend from an area purely of function to an environment with community at the heart of it. With this in mind, a new town square and quality public spaces have been developed, making Beenleigh a place that is attractive for investment for both businesses and residents alike.
At the moment there are many schools, a community centre, two theatres and a library, as well as sporting facilities, parklands, a university and a hospital just ten minutes’ drive away. The Beenleigh Historical Village and Museum is an open-air museum that preserves 20 historic buildings and a number of historic artefacts from the region. Additionally, the town is home to Australia’s oldest rum distillery, Beenleigh Artisan Distillers, the Yugambeh people’s research and language centre, which promotes and protects the traditional knowledge of the Yugambeh people who inhabited south-east Queensland for over 23,000 years.
As well as the array of cultural, sporting, shopping and dining out options in Beenleigh itself, it is also just half an hour’s drive away from both the Gold Coast and Brisbane CBD so there’s no shortage of ways for Beenleigh residents to entertain themselves.
With the Court House located in the middle of the town, Beenleigh is seeing more legal and professional services arrive in the area, causing employment opportunities in these areas to surge.
Aside from this prospering industry, LJ Hooker, Queensland Consulting Services, KT Accounting & Taxation, H&R Block and Beenleigh Taxation are all headquartered in the town, with financial and accounting industries, administrative services and IT roles all making up the growing Beenleigh workforce.
