Named after William Deagon who was Mayor of Sandgate from 1882 - 1884, Deagon is only minutes away from the sea breezes, beautiful views and all the other attractions of Moreton Bay. Located approximately 16 kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD, it is one of the last suburbs on the northside of Brisbane with deep water mooring.
Public transport is excellent with city trains and buses servicing the suburb and access to main arterial roads is nearby.
Residents are well catered for with primary and secondary schools located in Deagon and the surrounding suburbs, as well as North Point Institute of TAFE in Bracken Ridge.
Deagon Plaza has a child minding facility and gym and services the retail needs of the community. This is complemented by Sandgate Village Shopping Centre along Brighton Road.
There are plenty of dining options in and around Deagon, with many fast food outlets, as well as the cafes, pubs, fish and chip shops and restaurants all close by in Sandgate Village.
The nearby foreshore and increasing number of restaurants and cafes in Sandgate has contributed to Deagon’s popularity in recent times.
Its population has seen a gradual shift from established families and retirees towards a younger demographic bringing with it a lovely community-oriented feel. There are plenty of parks and sporting facilities for residents to enjoy.
Home to the long-established Deagon Racecourse, the facilities are still used to train thoroughbreds and the sight of fine looking race horses being walked along the Deagon roadside is not uncommon.
The Deagon Flea Markets are nestled under the trees of the Sandgate High School every Sunday morning where you’ll find heaps of stalls with bric-a-brac, fresh fruit and vegetables, massages, great food, plants, new and used goods etc.
The adjoining bayside suburbs of Sandgate and Shorncliffe host some celebrated annual events including Music by the Sea, The Einbunpin Festival and the Bluewater Festival, which celebrates the start of the iconic Brisbane to Gladstone yacht race every Easter.
