Queensburgh is a built up area that has boomed recently to include as many as 10 suburbs in its reach just 15 minutes’ drive south-west of Durban, en route to Amanzimtoti on the M7.
With the push for property moving prices well out of reach of the average South African, Queensburgh manages to provide affordable properties to first time buyers as well as more substantial homes for top of the market range purchasers, and its accessibility and rapid growth make it a popular suburb in which to live.
When staying in Queensburgh you’re only 10 minutes from the Pavilion shopping centre and within easy access of Hillcrest, Westville, Kloof and Pinetown. Queensburgh is also positioned neatly between the southern industrial hubs of Prospecton, Jacobs and Mobeni, and Pinetown’s industrial areas of Westmead and New Germany. The suburb’s access to the Durban International Airport is one of the best.
But Queensburgh also offers the odd exciting haven, despite its commercial success. The suburb of Northdene includes the North Park Nature Reserve, a small yet beautiful protected area of coastal lowland forest right next to the Umhlatuzana River. Delightful paths have been carefully laid and one can wander past established ponds that are a haven for water birds, and spot the odd bushbuck, grey duiker or mongoose.
