Profiling Your Community: Bayview Heights
Bayview Heights is an established residential area, with conservation areas in the west. Bayview Heights is bounded by the suburb of Earlville and Clarkes Creek in the north, the suburb of Woree and the railway line in the east, the suburb of Mount Sheridan in the south, and the locality of Lamb Range and Freshwater Creek State Forest in the west. Bayview Heights is named to describe the area – with views of the bay.
Settlement of the area dates from the late 1800s, with land used mainly for farming. Significant development took place from the 1970s into the 1980s. The population declined slightly during the 1990s, and then was relatively stable between 2001 and 2006, a result of little change in dwelling stock.
Major features of the area include the Friend and Forno Parks and Ben Wilson Park.
