The Brisbane suburb of Macgregor is about 13km south of the CBD and borders Upper Mount Gravatt and Sunnybank. Macgregor has experienced strong growth over the last few years and given the upgrading of the Southeast Freeway and the new Busway to the City, the area is assured continued growth and popularity into the future.
Most of the housing in the suburb is high and low-set dwellings from the 1970s. Due to their retro feel, these homes are now frequently being renovated and rendered. There is very little land left for development. Macgregor Park is an exclusive part of the suburb where houses are likely to fetch much higher prices than the average. These new homes are around 10 years old, high-set, and grand style houses.
Macgregor has its own State School and State High School and many other educational, retail and commercial facilities are located in neighbouring suburbs, especially Sunnybank. The Garden City Shoppingtown is located in Macgregor, however, and attracts shoppers from far and wide.
