Camira, a residential suburb at the eastern end of the City of Ipswich, is 21 km south-west of central Brisbane. It adjoins the Greenbank Military Camp and Carole Park where there is an industrial estate. A suburb of the 1970s, with a larger area than now, it was substantially developed within its present boundaries, but not beyond. Contemporary maps indicated that Camira spread south and west of its present area, taking in numerous tributaries of the Woogaroo Creek. Those areas, however, have been detached and developed as Springfield, Springfield Lakes and Augustine Heights.
Located next to the massive Springfield development, Camira is an attractive option for investors, renters as well as first home buyers. Camira has older acreage lots of more than four and a half acres, and new developments with lots of 700sqm. There is extensive bushland in the suburb’s western region with the east having been already developed. The nearby Springfield development has a plethora of recreational activities available with Camira itself also offering a recreational park set up for a variety of sports as well as a large park with barbecue and picnic facilities, and playground. There are ample employment opportunities in the area with Springfield planning to provide jobs for one in three residents.
