“A relaxed community surrounded by wetlands and green spaces”

Deagon is a relaxed community suburb, located 16 km north of the Brisbane CBD. Cabbage Tree Creek and the Boondall Wetlands hug one of its boundaries, providing a natural playground of tidal flats, mangroves, salt-marshes, grasslands, and lush green forests. The beachside suburb of Sandgate is right next door, making a ‘seaside weekend escape’ a thing to do every day (if you wanted). Deagon boasts its own racecourse, and although horse racing ceased in 1941, the racecourse remains a first-class training establishment. The flat, tree-lined streets house beautiful Queenslanders and 1950’s post-war cottages – many still in original condition and on big blocks of land. Some new builds are popping up on recently sub-divided blocks. The local market square is small but has all the essentials – IGA, Coffee Shop, Bakery, Doctors and Pharmacy. Deagon is easily accessed from Sandgate Road and the Gateway Motorway. Public transport is plentiful, with three stations easily accessed by residents – Deagon, Boondal, and Sandgate. Brisbane CBD is only a 30-minute trip. A variety of bus services also access the suburb and Brisbane Airport is a quick 17-minute drive. The only school located in Deagon is Sandgate District State High School; however, a number of good state and private schools are located in the surrounding suburbs.
