Profile

The suburb of Drewvale is 19.5 south of the Brisbane CBD and borders the neighbouring suburbs of Calamvale, Parkinson and Algester.

The area is mainly made up of examples of newer homes anywhere between five and 25 years old - especially low and highset brick homes. There are some examples of older style homes left over from the early days of the suburb.

The area is sparsely populated with a semi-rural feel, although a number of recent residential developments are changing the make-up of the suburb. There was a lot of farmland prior to the development of new housing estates with a few houses still on large acreage blocks.

The main road to Brisbane is the Beaudesert Road and the Logan Motorway is located close by making it convenient to get to the Gold Coast.
Most of the community infrastructure and facilities are located in neighbouring Calamvale. These include educational facilities and sporting facilities.

According to the 2006 Census there were 2,580 people living in the suburb with a median age of 30. The median individual income was b$595 per week. Of all occupied private dwellings 76.7% were either fully owned or being purchased; 18.7% were being rented.
