Nathan is a southern suburb of Brisbane located 12 kilometres from the Brisbane Central Business District. It was named after Sir Matthew Nathan in 1967, who was the governor of Queensland in 1920 until 1926. It has a population of 1, 549 according to the 2011 Australian Census. Though it is sparsely populated, the suburb is still culturally diverse with almost 30% oversees-born residents.
The Toohey Forest Conservation Park is located in the suburb, as well as Griffith University’s Nathan Campus and the Queensland Sports and Athletics Centre which was the host stadium for the opening ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games in 1982. The facilities of the stadium are now being used by The Queensland Academy of Sport. The Mount Gravatt Cemetery is also a part of the suburb.
The suburb is also rich in plant life with much of its parkland and university grounds being filled with eucalyptus, grass trees, banksias and leptospermum. The suburb is also home to some local fauna that includes hoary bats, tawny frogmouths, powerful owl, sugar gliders, squirrel gliders, great gliders, flying foxes and possums.
Nathan is sprawling with greenery and is home to a diverse ecosystem, but it can also be prone to drainage blockage because of large tree roots that can penetrate through pipes underground causing severe damage to your drainage system.
These blocked drains can be very unpleasant, preventing wastewater from leaving your household or property. It can also be a great interruption to your everyday tasks and routines at home or in schools and other commercial and public areas. If you’re having difficulty in flushing your toilet or if you see that water doesn’t drain away quickly, this could be a sign of clogged pipelines.
But there’s absolutely no need to worry when the experts are just a phone call away. Contact Drain Cleaning Brisbane at 07 3667 8003 if ever you’re having drainage troubles in Nathan.
