New Beith Suburb Profile
NEW BEITH is a rural-residential suburb in the far west of Logan City with the 2011 census recording a population of 3,446 people. Sitting between the Logan River and Oxley Creek catchment it was formerly part of Beaudesert Shire becoming part of Logan City after government amalgamations in 2008.
It was given the name New Beith from one of its earlier settlers whose wife came from a Scottish town called Beith. The area was originally used for wood milling and farming with large parts of New Beith remaining undeveloped to this day, believed to be home to some of our rarer native wildlife such as the spotted quoll.
Developers began to subdivide in the early nineties advertising predominately 1-acre blocks and keeping large areas of greenspace available for residents to use. The shopping Centre on Pub Lane was established in 2008 along with a medical centre, childcare facilities and tavern bringing much needed amenities to the area. The suburb continues to grow and change with new smaller residential land releases in New Beith and surrounding suburbs bringing with them the promise of more shops, community parks and schools. The current state school catchment for New Beith is Greenbank Primary and Park Ridge High along with a number of private schools within a short drive. New Beith families have access to parkland, picnic and bbq facilities, pony tracks, off leash dog area, soccer club and a weekly park run along with plenty of other activities in neighbouring suburbs. New Beith is a suburb where you have all the necessities close at hand yet still see plenty of trees, hear the birds and even spot a kangaroo enjoying the greenspace too.
