Forest Lake was the first Master Planned Community within the municipality of Brisbane and it has won numerous awards for its design. Forest Lake was considered instrumental in the creation of affordable housing within Australia. The entire community is linked by an extensive network of pedestrian and cycle paths which are integrated into the large open space network. At the 2011 Census it had a population of 22,426.
