Forest Lake

Forest Lake, a 1990s residential suburb, is 16 km south-west of central Brisbane. It is immediately south of Inala, and before its formation the area was part of Doolandella.

Forest Lake began conceptually in 1991 as a Delfin housing estate, consisting of 7700 house lots and provision for 120 ha of parks, a shopping centre and school. It was estimated that by 2006 there would be a population of 22,000.
