The small residential suburb starts just south-east of the Brooker Highway and Goodwood Road junction. It is best known for its annual Christmas light decorations. Most houses in Goodwood were built in the 1950s as public housing. The suburb is also home to light industry and docks. An Anglican Church and two Primary Schools are also located in the suburb.Goodwood is a dream suburb, and low house prices should be taken advantage of, before the boom hits again in early 2012.
