 Our Community

   
Most of our students come from the suburbs of Durack and Inala in Brisbane's south-west.  Some live in other nearby suburbs, such as Forest Lake, Doolandella, Pallara, and a few live further afield.   

The WhereiS website has a map of Durack where you can get directions to our school and find out distances to and from places you live or want to visit.
