Looking to buy acreage in the Redlands? We’ve got you covered!
The Redlands is an area of outstanding natural beauty, so it’s no wonder that so many buyers are attracted to this picturesque region.
A Rich Farming History
The red fertile soil that gives the Redlands its’ name has long been associated with agriculture. In fact, many of Brisbane’s fruit and vegetables were grown in the Redlands for much of the 20th
The first land sales were held in 1851, with settlers initially clearing the land for grazing purposes. However, the rich volcanic soil saw many landowners trade grazing for growing crops, fruits, and vegetables - or sugar cane, as was the case in Ormiston
In 1889, the rail line to Cleveland was completed and the easy access to Brisbane saw day-trippers flock to the area in droves.
While times have certainly changed, the appeal of the Redlands continues unabated.
The former Redland Shire became a city in 2008, however it is still possible to find acreage property in the area, with the added bonus of close proximity to shops, schools and public transport.

The Benefits of Acreage
Here are just a few of the reasons buyers mention when they are in the market for an acreage property:
- A feeling of freedom, peace, and tranquility away from noisy neighbours;
- Natural flora and fauna, bushland and potential for large rambling gardens;
- Room to have a tennis court, pool, or circular driveway (or even all three!)
- Keeping a menagerie of dogs, cats, chickens, sheep, goats and even horses.
- Space for all the hobbies and toys - boats, caravans, motorbikes, sheds, BMX tracks or whatever takes your fancy!
