 What I Love About Petrie 


I grew up on the Redcliffe Peninsula and went to Scarborough State School. I bought my first home in Redcliffe and am now raising my family in North Lakes with my wife Claire.

There is no better place to grow up and raise a family.

There is so much to love about our community from the parks and the cafes to the community groups and the small businesses.

We have access to great schools, hospitals, sporting clubs, cultural and community groups which ensure the high standard of liveability in our suburbs.
