Named after Violet Marsden, one of many pioneering families in the area Marsden has a long and colourful history. Initially established as an Estate with land being sold for Macadamia Plantations Marsden was becoming recognised as its own identity in the mid 1970’s. Significantly Burrowes State School, and Marsden State High School opened in 1987. 1992 saw the opening of the Library while Maximillian Kolbe Catholic Church opened in 1998. Following these came the Islamic Mosque and the beautiful Cambodian Buddhist Temple.
Latest improvements have seen an upgrade of the Marsden Park Shopping Centre and the opening of the Fifth Avenue Shopping centre opposite the modern, extensive Crestmead Police Station. The latest 2011 Census saw a population of 11,278 with a median age group significantly lower than the average at 27 years. This indicates a strong investment area with a great opportunity for returns from investment.
Public transport is well catered for with significant bus routes and the proximity to Loganlea Train Station, Woodridge Train Station and the upgraded Logan Hospital is only minutes from the area. Marsden is in the developing and progressive southern regions of Brisbane now wholly within the Logan Shire. Renowned for its proximity to wetlands and well cared for parks, Marsden is a great place for the family.
