Suburb Profile: Moorooka
Formerly a working class neighbourhood, Moorooka’s leafy hills are now home to professionals and families, as well as recently-arrived communities. Only 7 kilometres from the city, this World War Two manufacturing area has been invigorated by an influx of people keen to discover this suburb’s hidden charms.
The number of highly sought-after Queenslander-style houses in Moorooka has led to some significant urban renewal in this area, with eagle-eyed renovators converting modest elevated wooden houses into comfortable, multi-storey homes.
