Why Sunnybank is Your Heart’s Desire

Why Sunnybank is Your Heart’s Desire

There is no better place than Sunnybank and Sunnybank Hills in Brisbane, especially if you’re looking for a great place for families with kids! Due to its proximity to dining precincts, recreation and shopping centres, most of its residents think that aside from it being very family-friendly and convenient, houses in this peaceful suburb also offer them something extra due to its location, amenities, privacy and security.

In terms of architecture, most properties in Sunnybank are now being replaced with high-end homes to match that of MacGregor and Robertson; while other older homes in the area are also being refreshed, making them a great long-term real estate investment for both home buyers and entrepreneurs.

The suburb is also very close to public transport (e.g. rail stations, bus stops) and schools, which are very sought after, and perfect for various learners, professionals and retirees who are living here. Speaking of which, Macgregor Primary School – a Professional Learning Community with a focus on learning and one of the top primary schools in Queensland – is also nearby and accessible to students.

Additionally, Sunnybank and its neighbouring suburbs like MacGregor are home for thousands and thousands of Rugby and Sports Club members. There’s Souths Sunnybank Rugby League Football Club – the second oldest Rugby League club in Brisbane – and the Sunnybank Community and Sports Club, where you can enjoy great food at Fresco's Lounge, Coffee Corner and Terrace Dining. There’s also MacGregor Cricket Club and MacGregor Netball Club in MacGregor to name a few.

This suburb – other than the convenience it can bring your families – is also the perfect spot for shoppers and food hunters. With its Asian influenced community centres and shops such as Market Square, Sunny Park and Sunnybank Plaza, those who wish to get a taste of various products from multiple countries would definitely enjoy and adore this great area!

To elaborate, Sunny Park has Aldi and Woolworths Supermarket while Sunnybank Plaza – the biggest shopping hub in Sunnybank –  features a Kmart, Coles, and a Hoyts Cinemas for those who are fond of doing groceries and watching movies.

Both Sunny Park and Sunnybank Plaza, including Market Square,  have been heavily influenced by the local Asian population. From Chinese to Vietnamese, eateries, restaurants and even noodle shops are sitting side by side. For instance, in Sunnybank Plaza, there’s (1) Mappen and Hakataya in Sunnybank Plaza where you can taste the best ramen in Brisbane; (2) the Hot Cake House where crispy pancakes with red bean, custard or chocolate are waiting for you!; (3) the Vietnamese Corner BBQ, The Little Cube, the Happy Hours Tea Bar where you can grab an inexpensive  traditional breakfast or king-sized lunch; and of course, (4) the Breadtop and Meet Fresh where you can taste Japanese and Taiwanese desserts respectively.

But how about in Market Square? Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian, Singaporean, Thai and Vietnamese restaurants and supermarkets are everywhere here, too! There’s the Pho Hien Vuong Pasteur, home to the best pho in Sunnybank – if not in Brisbane – and Malaya Corner, the spot for roti carni, Hainan chicken rice and char koay teow. You can also find here the High Fresh and Yuen’s supermarket to cater to any of your South East Asian needs in terms of foodstuff and fresh staples.

In fact, you can also check out other shopping centres that are just close to Sunnybank if you still wish to explore more hubs and stores. These include Centro Pinelands, Oasis Shopping Village, Westfield Garden City, Sunnybank Hills Shoppingtown and Calamvale Central. Well, as mentioned, this suburb is everything that your heart could ever desire!
