Shailer Park

Overview

Shailer Park is sitauted between low-lying alluvial plains and the hills cloaked with State Forests. The undulating land affords panoramic views and offers a wide range of lifestyle options. Well established, the majority of homes were constructed in the 1980s of brick-and-tile for low-maintenance benefit.

Where to play

Cable Ski World Logan caters to web-footed people of varying degrees of skiing ability. From kneeboards through to wakeboards, the basic equipment is provided, with the more advanced skiers able to hire high-quality wakeboards.

Apart from the Calfornia Creek Golf Club, here are plenty of other wide-open spaces and lovely parks in the area. Skinners Park is a popular BBQ area, Homestead Park has a cricket oval and football field, while Parkview Park offers both walking and bike trails that wind through the forest and wetlands.

Where to shop

The mega retail centre for the area is the Logan Hyperdome. Conveniently located alongside the Pacific Motorway, it’s here where you’ll fine the big names such as Myer, Kmart and Target to Hoyts and plenty of small retail outlets and banks.

Employment

The Hyperdome is the major employer for the area, but as Shailer Park is a major service hub for sorrounding suburbs, many professional services and other commercial/retail businesses can also be found here.
