In 1992, Maha Sinnathamby AM and Bob Sharpless acquired almost 3000 hectares of land on the doorstep of Brisbane with a clear vision: to create a master-planned city from scratch.
It would be the first city in Australia since the national capital was constructed.
The dream was so big it needed an Act of Parliament.
In 1997, Queensland’s Parliament voted unanimously for legislation to make Springfield into the state’s newest city. Seven prime ministers and six premiers have played a role in the city’s growth.
Springfield City has evolved into a city driven by education, health and innovation.
More than 53,000 residents have ready access to 12 schools, 19 kindergartens, a hospital, a university, an innovation precinct, a stadium and dynamic public transport options among other features.
And that’s just a start.
Springfield City will grow into a city of almost 150,000 people enjoying a community lifestyle unlike anywhere in Australia.
Springfield City Group has set a national benchmark for city development.
It’s a story of vision, determination and success against the odds that has changed the lives of tens of thousands of people.
