|LGA:||City of Ipswich|
Springfield Lakes is one of the suburbs created within Greater Springfield, a 2,850 hectare site which is Australia’s largest master planned community. For comparison purposes this is more than half the size of Cairns. The suburb was specifically located to reduce growth along the Brisbane-Gold Coast corridor in South East Queensland.
The Centenary Motorway forms the north-western boundary of the suburb. The Springfield railway line runs immediately parallel and north of the highway.
The suburb is serviced by bus route 522 which links Goodna station with Springfield Central station.
Springfield Lakes was developed by Lend Lease as a series of smaller neighbourhoods (villages). As of November 2015 these neighbourhoods are: Bridgewater Chase (Springfield), Clancy's Crossing (Springfield), The Escarpment (Springfield), Lakeside, Eden's Homestead, Olive Springs, Butterfly Green, The Promenade, Waterside at The Promenade, The Peninsula, The Summit, Aspect, Creekside, Lakes Entrance, Wildflower Ridge, Park Edge, Tea Trees, Central Walk, and The Sanctuary. The Peninsula is the final neighbourhood of Springfield Lakes developed immediately behind Regatta Lake and Discovery Lake.
