Jimboomba is a part of the growth corridor to the south of Brisbane and is now a part of Logan city. The highway between Brisbane and Beaudesert is the Mt. Lindsay Highway. On the corner of the Mt. Lindsay Highway and Cusack Lane at Jimboomba is the Jimboomba Country Tavern. It was formerly called the Railway Hotel. Railway lines are still close by, but no trains have travelled along them for years.
Adjacent to the car park next to the Jimboomba Country Tavern on the Mt Lindssay Highway is the Jimboomba Primary School. The main retail shops which include Woolworths and Coles are in Cusack Lane.
I have always though that the "lane" part of Cusack Lane is a misnomer, because Cusack Lane is the main road between the highway at Jimboomba and Flagstone. Flagstone is a part of Jimboomba and is planned to become a city in its own right in the future. Along Cusack Lane is the Jimboomba Turf Group turf farm and headquarters. Jimboomba Turf is one of Australia's leading suppliers of turf and the company claims they have sold enough turf to cover the Suncorp Stadium nearly ten thousand times.
Logan River at Jimboomba
Driving down Cusack Lane, you will cross the Logan River on a high level bridge. The old low level wooden bridge is still there and is now a part of the Jimboomba Lions Park which shares boundaries with both the Logan River and Cusack Lane. Except during times of heavy rain and floods, the water in this part of the Logan River is fairly shallow and is a favourite spot for swimming with the locals. Fishing from the bridge is also a popular activity.
The Jimboomba Lions Park has open grassy areas, undercover table and chairs, public toilets which are open 24/7 and a public car park.
