About North Lakes

North Lakes is a newly developed suburb, previously Mango Hill until 2006. Beginning as a housing estate the creation of the suburb of North Lakes brought along new businesses and parks, many of which were aimed at young families.

A myriad of parks, adventure playgrounds, bike paths and sporting facilities gives North Lakes residents the opportunity for an active lifestyle outside.

Lake Eden is a highlight of North Lakes. The pristine body of water in the town centre is surrounded by parks, playgrounds, boardwalks and cafes. Lake Eden is also home to a large volume of wildlife and a thriving ecosystem.
