Westlake, a residential suburb, is 14 km south-west of central Brisbane. It is reached by the Centenary Highway (1964) but postdates the 'centenary suburbs' of Jindalee and Jamboree Heights. The Westlake Lake is in the north of the suburb near the Brisbane River.

Westlake developed in conjunction with Middle Park and Riverhills, and shares the shoreline of the Pullen reach of the Brisbane River with the latter suburb. The Westlake-Riverhills Bushcare Group (c1992) is a voluntary body for preservation of river front bushland.
