Ian,

If you look at Domain.com.au it should give you some idea of average household incomes, crime rates etc. Alternatively, you can buy a CD from the ABS (Australian Bureau of Statistics) for around £10 (I think) which gives very specific demographic data on all areas in the Brisbane region. We found it very useful. However, you do really need to read this type of data and then research the area yourself - don't just take the statistics in isolation.

However, we did find it very accurate in the end...

BTW I think the ABS website is abs.com.au (but if it's not, I apologise)...

I have been to Springwood a number of times on business, but couldn't give you any idea what it's like to live there, I'm afraid.

Couldn't tell you what it's like to live in this area, but I generally go there to the buy stuff for my boat, from a business in the location...what I've seen of the area , it seems to me like a very busy location.

cheers

Default Springwood

From memory it's about 25km (15 mile) from Brisbane CBD (Central Business District) and twice as far again from the GoldCoast.

I only know the place by passing thru on the Pacific Motorway (now the M1). If I'm right at that location there are wall-to-wall lots selling cars / tractors / boats/ burgers lining the Highway as it snakes thru Springwood.
