Westlake is a western suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Westlake adjoins the suburbs of Jindalee, Middle Park and Mount Ommaney, and is a 20-minute drive from the Brisbane central business district.
Westlake has much riverside properties and in the early 1990s expanded to include the development Westlake Waters with the 'natural lakes'.
As residential expansion occurred, the 1990s also saw the rise of community efforts to preserve riverfront bushland and encourage environmental protection of remnant natural areas. Groups which formed to forge this greater interest in environmental protection include Save Our Riverfront Bushland (1991), Westlake-Riverhills Bushcare Group (1993) and Centenary & District Environment Action Inc (1996).
