Located 9km north of Brisbane CBD, Northgate is often referred to by residents as "Brisbane's best kept secret'.
The reason for this is probably because Northgate has managed to combine inner city convenience with very reasonable real estate prices.
For those who work in the CBD it is perfect, with its own railway station well serviced with multiple lines.
The area is also well served with shops and amenities, and has a school.
The biggest employer in the area is the Golden Circle processing plant.
