Print Companies in Darra
Darra is one of Brisbane’s oldest suburbs, lying around 14 km south west of Brisbane CBD. Housing is primarily of the Queenslander-style of the 1940s and 1950s – distinctive to the State because of the design for airflow in this warm climate. Subdivision however, has become popular with this suburb’s large blocks, so more modern styles of housing, including townhouses, are cropping up as both the population and town boundaries have increased. Streetscapes have been rejuvenated, and neighbouring recreational facilities and parkland in Jindalee and Sinnamon Park improved and extended, though Darra itself also has a range of small parks.
The Brisbane City Council’s plans to encourage industrial development and long-term economic growth are of interest to print companies looking to future markets locally. The further redevelopment of the industrial park in Darra brings with it capital and upgraded local infrastructure and community facilities. It’s all part of the City of Brisbane’s forward planning, incorporating growth within a sustainable plan, with good links between Council, local business, commerce and industry. This includes planning for the Darra neighbourhood, which demonstrates awareness of Darra’s unique multicultural nature and the needs of its mixed light industry, business and industrial areas.
The Ipswich train line provides fast and easy travel to Brisbane, as do major roads.
Darra has attracted many migrants in recent years, particularly from South East Asia, adding a highly cosmopolitan atmosphere to the suburb’s local business. There are many Vietnamese/Chinese restaurants and grocery stores.
Altogether, the area is doing well and can look forward to a good future, with expansion of both its population and commercial base. The market is there for business cards and stationery, of course, and, with a boom in real estate and industrial expansion, it is also there for areas such as digital printing, brochure and catalogue printing.
