The natural beauty of Brookwater a drawcard

The natural beauty of Brookwater and a well-designed master-planned community is what drew Dr Deepak Doshi and his wife to Greater Springfield. Dr Doshi, the West Moreton Health and Hospital Board Chief Medical Officer (CMO), moved to Brookwater just over a year ago. “On our first drive, when my wife and I were on the hunt for a house, we were amazed to see the well-designed township here,” Dr Doshi said. “It was the welcome feel from everyone and amenities close by that were an added attraction.”

Brookwater is a premier residential community, where lush greens, lakes, parklands and natural bushland meet modern residential living, and is only 30 minutes from Brisbane’s CBD. The Brookwater Golf Club is an 18-hole public access golf course, designed by former professional golfer Greg Norman, however Dr Doshi admitted he had not taken to the greens yet. “I do like the long stretches of green grass and walking areas,” Dr Doshi said. “We see a lot of multicultural families in the area and last week was Deepavali (festival of lights celebrated by Hindus) and New Year for us, which we celebrated at a temple.”

Dr Doshi’s house is the perfect place to unwind after a hard day’s work. “Our house overlooks the mountains and there is a nice garden space to relax and watch the sunset,” he said. “On the weekend, we often go out for walks in the surrounding beautiful areas. About 20 minutes’ drive is the yoga centre (that is now open) and a great way to connect to our inner self, for me and my wife.”

He said there was also a Buddhist temple close by, a place where they often go for prayers and meditation. Dr Doshi said Greater Springfield was a “mini-city” with everything one needed for the entire family. “There are several educational institutions, including schools and higher learning institutions,” Dr Doshi said. “There’s great public transport which makes getting to the university easy for everyone.” He said the mini-city made everyone feel welcome, for all ages and cultures.

Since taking on the role as CMO at West Moreton Health, Dr Doshi said 2020 had been a “challenging year for all”. Dr Doshi said he looked forward to making a positive difference to the health of the community, specifically vulnerable groups that included indigenous, migrants and economically disadvantaged people, which was the most satisfying part of his job. “It has been over decade now that we have been enjoying the sunshine in Australia which was immensely missed prior to coming here from the UK,” Dr Doshi said. “The natural beauty of Australia is unsurpassable and we wish to explore the continent more both on land and in the waters once the borders open for us all.”
