The suburb of Springwood is a part of Logan City and takes up an area of approximately six squared kilometres. It is located approximately twenty kilometres south east of the Brisbane CBD and is surrounded by the neighbouring suburbs of Underwood, Rochedale South, Priestdale, Daisy Hill and Slacks Creek. There are a number of main roads running through and bordering the suburb. Some of these include the Pacific Motorway, Springwood Road, Cinderella Drive, Dennis Road, Watland Street, Barbaralla Drive, Chatswood Road, Achilles Drive, the Pacific Highway, Rochedale Road, and many more. When the South East Freeway to Brisbane was planned, it was at this time that the suburb of Springwood was laid out as a development at one end of the proposed freeway. Springwood was originally a part of Slacks Creek but was severed from then in 1969 and thus became the Springwood we know and love today.
