Established in 1950 on the northern fringes of Brisbane, Aspley Memorial is now a bushland oasis in the heart of Carseldine suburbia, about 13km north-east of the CBD.
The suburb is home to the North Brisbane College of Advanced Education and within a short driving distance of the Boondall Wetlands Park on Moreton Bay and the bay beaches of Sandgate, Brighton and Nudgee.
The long Cabbage Tree Creek flows through the centre of Carseldine before making its entrance into Moreton Bay near Shornecliff.
Long the mecca of Brisbane petrol-heads, the Lakeside Raceway borders Kurwongbah. Phillip Vaughan Park in the suburb's south offers children's sports facilities and a playground, BBQs, shelters and toilets.
