Springwood, a north-eastern suburb of Logan City, is 20 km south-east of central Brisbane. The suburb was created in 1969 by severance of the part of Slacks Creek north-east of the Pacific Highway (now Pacific Motorway). 'Springwood' was a timbered property with a natural spring in the neighbouring suburb of Rochedale South.

Springwood is a typical late twentieth century suburb with several drive-in shopping centres, State and primary and secondary schools (both 1977), a TAFE and a conservation park. Another State primary school, Chatswood Hills, opened in 1983. A local reservoir near the conservation park has commanding views to the west and south. Three drive-in shopping centres clustered around the intersection of Logan Road and the Pacific Highway are in Springwood: Annandale and Centro Springwood.
