Doolandella is a growing outer suburb of Brisbane, situated next to Forest Lakes, around 20km south-west of the CBD. Forest Lakes was one of the first major master-planned communities in Brisbane, and Doolandella has followed suit, growing substantially in the last 15 years.

With access to plenty of schools, green open spaces and parklands, Doolandella is a family-friendly suburb that is conveniently situated near the Brisbane CBD, with great access to both the Ipswich and Logan Motorway.

In 2004, a total of 70 houses with a population of 255 were recorded in the suburb. By the 2011 Australian Census, the population had swelled to over 3,100, with the number of occupied dwellings rising to 934. The number of available properties has shrunk in recent years, in response to increasing demand.

It is still possible to buy acreage homes in the area, though these are increasingly being subdivided into smaller property lots to make way for new development.
