Car Rental Slacks Creek

If you’ve dreamed of living the green leafy lifestyle on a large block only moments from Brisbane’s CBD, then Slacks Creek is the ideal place for you. Just 20-minutes or so from the city centre, this comfortable suburb in the City of Logan stacks up for convenience, a laid-back ambience and fantastic access to the Gold Coast. Located on a significant growth corridor, Slacks Creek is bordered by the Pacific Highway, and well-positioned between two major hotspots – Queensland’s capitals of state and surf. Being so close to everything, your stay in Slacks Creek will be enhanced by your hire car. It’s dead-easy to whisk off from home base to the buzz of Brisbane or the golden southerly sands of Surfers.

The demographics are younger here, compared to the national median, and you’ll enjoy the friendly and easy-going vibe around Slacks Creek. The creek itself is named after a family who established a cattle-run in the area, while the indigenous inhabitants originally called it Munagee (‘place of the fishes’). With young families and seekers of affordable property among the 10,000 residents, you’ll be glad for the fab range of parklands and playgrounds in this fast-growing district. Slack Creek’s proximity to Logan City Centre and the Logan Super Centre is another handy perk. Next door, the local mega Ikea does a roaring trade here and is the biggest in the southern hemisphere. You’ll find it a cinch to navigate the features around Slacks Creek with the flexibility of your hire car. 

Explore the tastes of Slacks Creek with the ease of your hire car

The community atmosphere is alive and well in Slacks Creek, and certainly offers fun, surprises and loads of relaxation for its locals and visitors. The diverse cultural fusion adds to the character of Slacks Creek, with a smidge over 60 per cent born in Australia. Migrating New Zealanders comprise the largest group born overseas, with a smattering of European and Samoan ancestries thrown into the mix. 

Kiwis missing the flavours of home should head to the Alley Pitstop – a cheery container cafe with al fresco seating. Look out for classics like paua fritters, crumbed hoki with chips and salad, or whitebait omelette. Finish with a Kiwi-style milkshake or a locally roasted coffee. Discover a special treat at Taua’s NZ Bakehouse that boasts recipes handed down through the generations, made on-site from scratch. Choose from Kiwi favourites including lolly cake, peanut butter brownies, and batches of Afghan biscuits.

Another cosy spot with a great brew is Wake Me Up Espresso. Naturally, the espresso is excellent, and you’ll want to pair it with one of their toasties – a specialty of the house, run by a Chilean-born chef. Pick up an instrument and stay for a Sunday jam session; or just sit back in your armchair and listen to the piano, guitar or accordion-playing aficionados. For a sugary finish, don’t leave your taste buds hanging – pop in to Sooo Sweet and pick up some delectable Lebanese baked goods and Mediterranean pastries. Countless trays of mouth watering fare include possibly Brisbane’s finest baklava. This little gem is very sweet indeed!

Digging deeper into Slacks Creek is a breeze in your hire car 

Before you leave, why not explore a little further afield. If you’re looking for some fresh air and a chance to unwind, head to Springwood Conservation Park, just over the other side of the Pacific Highway. This former quarry site has been allowed to recover its natural beauty. You’ll delight in walking through beautiful regenerated bushland, only five-minutes from Slacks Creek and saved by the efforts of the community. Discover some great trails through eucalypt forests with rocks, cliffs and caves; or enjoy distant views over Logan at the Stringybark Lookout. The Gorge Discovery Circuit descends through the valley and opens up to a lush canopy; while an ascending stairway on the longer track is nicknamed the ‘Springwood Stairs of Death’ for good reason! Take a picnic and rest those legs. Keep your eyes peeled for koalas, sugar gliders and swamp wallabies. Depending on the time of year, you may see spring wildflowers blooming or cascades flowing through the gorge.

Just moments away, Daisy Hill Park is a stunning oasis in the middle of suburbia that leads to the Old Quarry. Whether on foot, mountain bike or horseback, discover the tranquil waterholes and forests of stringybark, tallowwood, ironbark and spotted gums. 

The Chung Tian Temple in Priestdale, 15-minutes away, blends an opportunity for quiet reflection with a visit to a koala colony in the outskirts of its parklands. These serene temple gardens feature a Bodhi tree, sacred statues and a tea room with refreshments, open six days a week. The eye-catching multi-story pagoda (built in the Chinese palace style) houses an ornate artwork museum, several halls of worship, and a mirrored Lotus Treasury Room. Decorated with striking red and gold, this Buddhist retreat offers sanctuary and fascination for everyone. There’s definitely more to Slacks Creek than first meets the eye.
