Nowhere in the Ripley region can boast a life quite like the one at Ecco Ripley. An estimated 120,000 people will eventually live in the region that’s position only 40mins from Brisbane CBD, so every measure has been taken to ensure the extraordinary, cohesive masterplan is realised– a key commitment to this is that each resident lives no further than 200m from parklands and green open space, meaning all things parks and play are at your fingertips.

Add this to smart design features throughout, NBN ready homesites, and natural gas to each home, it’s little wonder this community continues to flourish.

Now, with the arrival of Lighthaven Third Release, offering elevated homesites on the development’s highest point, as well as being Ecco Ripley’s most central release, the promise of inner-circle living couldn’t be more fitting.

Harmony by design

Ecco Ripley is a harmonious blend of Japanese design principles and Australian identity. Homes are connected by lush parks and creative public spaces, linking residents while simultaneously maintaining privacy.

And we're the only community in Ripley (and only one of three across Queensland) to be awarded a coveted Five Star Green-Star Community rating from the Green Building Council of Australia in acknowledgement of the attention paid to economic, social and environmental responsibility.

It all starts with solid foundations.

The name ECCO is a statement of four key principles that lay the foundation of this 194-hectare master-planned community.


The preservation of the natural surrounds and local eco systems is perhaps the most recognisable, appealing and important hallmark of ECCO Ripley. Careful consideration and fresh, innovative thinking has been taken to make sure all residents live next to, or close by, parks and open spaces – all of which are connected by nature strips, green ribbons, leafy walkways and cycle paths.


The impressive 25-hectare Ripley Town Centre will be the bustling heart of the community and the vibrant hub of Ripley – offering an unmatched level of convenience, culture and connectedness. Beyond this, leisure areas and recreational spaces dot the wider community, giving neighbours every excuse to enjoy the social side of life and share genuine moments, not just a fence line.


Each home at ECCO Ripley will be connected to all the must-haves in modern living. Fibre optics cables will run to each property, along with natural gas lines. Bikeways and walking paths will link residents to the many green parks, communal spaces featuring Wi-Fi hotspots and Ripley Town Centre. A transit hub will also effortlessly connect the community to other city centres via proposed buses and trains.


ECCO Ripley has a very bright future, overflowing with opportunity for people of every lifestyle and life stage. Being located in the heart of one of Australia’s fastest growing corridors, 120,000 people are expected to call the Ripley region home in the coming years. This is an exciting prospect as opportunity will be as plentiful as the natural surrounds.

The life lives here

At ECCO Ripley, it’s about plenty of green spaces and leisure areas, fostering a strong community spirit and celebrating
the outdoorsy way of life for which Queensland is renowned – all blended with Japanese design masterfully reinterpreted for Australia.


As one of Australia’s most diversified residential builders, Sekisui House has gone above and beyond with Ecco Ripley to make sure its vision sets a high benchmark and exceeds resident’s expectations.

The latest release of Lighthaven is no exception. Offering homesites on the development’s highest elevation, all effortlessly close to parklands and green open space, those fortunate enough to secure a block will not only enjoy stunning vistas out to the scenic Flinders Ranges and the region itself, but also its most central location just 850m from the Ripley Town Centre. Everything is at your fingertips with inner-circle living at Ecco Ripley.
