This Greater Brisbane suburb has seen one of the biggest surges in median house price in the country.

A BRISBANE growth superstar suburb has cracked the national top two for fastest price growth in the country.

Nationally, three suburbs saw their median house prices grow by more than a third in over the three month period to May, according to CoreLogic August Market Trends report, released this afternoon.

Trundle in Parkes, New South Wales, was on top by the narrowest of margins (0.2 percentage points) at 34 per cent growth, with Sea Lake in Buloke, Victoria, and Spring Mountain in Ipswich, Queensland tied in second spot with 33.8 per cent growth.

That’s a massive surge for all three, but while Trundle was 5.5 hours from the Sydney CBD and Sea Lake was almost 18 hours away, Spring Mountain was just over half an hour away from the Brisbane CBD.


Spring Mountain is just 36 minutes drive from the Brisbane CBD.

“Moving forward Spring Mountain is going to be the new Springfield Lakes. All the new display homes have been sold at Springfield Lakes and all the developers have moved to Spring Mountain and they have a wide range of Hamptons homes, luxury houses and the like. Spring Mountain is going to be the new inner-city hub of Springfield. It’s walking distance to shopping centre, USQ campus and all the activities.
