New $500m development planned for Morayfield

Posted: 6am 19 May 2022

Plans have been unveiled for a new $500 million residential development at Jacko Place, off Oakey Flat Rd, Morayfield.

Lendlease has unveiled Kinma Valley, which is expected to be home to more than 6500 people, in one of Australia’s fastest growing regions for new home buyers.

The new community is approved for up to 2500 new homes alongside about 31-hectares of central green corridor.

Kinma comes from the Kabi Kabi First Nation Peoples language which translates to ‘awake,’ capturing the spirit of a community with new beginnings, and the opportunity for happiness.

The first lots are expected to be released soon, with civil works to start in coming months.


“After years of in-depth planning and extensive consultation, today marks an incredibly important milestone for Lendlease and the Moreton Bay community,” Lendlease Managing Director, Communities, Matthew Mears said.

“Our vision for Kinma Valley is to not only create a market leading sustainable community that meets the needs and aspirations of homebuyers but to build a sense of belonging and connection to our newest community.

“The natural aspects will be one of the biggest drawcards for home buyers with the development offering incredible views to the Glasshouse Mountains, family-friendly neighbourhoods and green open spaces.”

With outdoor living a key focus, Kinma Valley has plans for 12 parks, a number of adventure playgrounds and more than 6km of walking and cycling paths, all interconnected with the nature reserve.

Variety of homes

A variety of homes will be available to suit a wide range of buyers, including first home buyers, young families, upgraders, and empty nesters.

Larger lots, distinctive building materials, innovative street design and casual neighbourhood meeting spaces will be key features of the community.

A community hub will offer convenience shopping and dining complementing the existing wide range of shopping and other services in the area.
