Rural lifestyle close to amenities
Narangba is a quiet, family suburb north of Brisbane with a wide range of new and established housing. Buyers interested in Narangba have a choice of traditional chamferboard and fibro homes in the older part of the suburb and brand new properties in the housing developments of Forest Ridge and Norfolk Lakes - both well-established and successful projects with ongoing stages being released onto the market. Norfolk Lakes boasts five distinctive neighbourhoods designed for first-home buyers or large families. Pole houses have views to the Glass House Mountains, while brick homes are also common. Buyers looking for a touch of rural lifestyle can still find acreage and larger home blocks on the suburb's fringe and in neighbouring Burpengary, Morayfield and Petrie.
Narangba has traditionally been attractive to families, young couples and retirees and many residents have upgraded into larger homes in the suburb in recent years. There are several primary schools in the suburb and a high school is located at nearby Dakabin. Major colleges located in adjoining suburbs include the North Brisbane Adventist College, Shaftsbury Citizenship Campus and Kolbe Catholic College. There is a regular Citytrain service to Brisbane City and the suburb is well serviced by regional shopping centres located at nearby Caboolture and Morayfield. Still quite a green suburb, Morayfield is dotted with parkland and sporting fields. A lake is located in the centre of the suburb and is home to a variety of wildlife.
Narangba in its Aboriginal origin meant small ridge, and that describes the area where the railway station with its associated township was situated. Earlier, it was part of an area referred to as Stoney Creek. The railway station was first called Sideling Creek Station, later renamed as Narangba. The suburb lies within the Burpengary Creek catchment area. An award-winning Development Control Plan has resulted in major residential interest regarding the areas of Narangba and Burpengary, with infrastructure matching population growth. An industrial estate providing services required by manufacturing and general industries has taken full advantage of the shire's transport corridors, with sites on either side of the Bruce Highway.
Narangba railway station provides regular Citytrain services to Brisbane and Ipswich, as well as Caboolture and the Sunshine Coast. Regular bus services connect all local suburbs and only four minutes from the Bruce Highway, allows a half hour car trip to either the Sunshine Coast or Brisbane City.
