Find your Place in Sunnybank.
Located in outer Brisbane, Queensland, Sunnybank is a multicultural suburb due to an influx of immigration in the 1980’s. Its popularity stemmed from the fact that, according to followers of Feng Shui, an aerial view of the suburb showed it to be at the heart of an enormous dragon curling in and around the CBD: a place of good fortune and good luck.
For those who aren’t concerned with Feng Shui, Sunnybank is also renowned for its reputation for good food. Another draw card for the suburb is the close proximity to quality education facilities including the Griffith University Nathan and Mt Gravatt Campus’, and TAFE Queensland SkillsTech.
