Kuraby – Suburb Profile

Kuraby, a residential suburb adjoining the Gateway Motorway, is 17 km south-east of central Brisbane. The suburb was part of an Agricultural Reserve proclaimed in 1861 and subdivided later during the decade for farm allotments.

It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal word describing a local creek, but when the South Coast railway line was opened in 1885 the local stopping place was named Spring Creek. Renaming as Kuraby came four years later.

The area was used for timber harvesting and farming. Settlers sent their children to the school at Eight Mile Plains, and a school was not opened at Kuraby until 1928. Similarly, church attendances were centred on a Protestant Chapel (1902) at Eight Mile Plains.

A change to urbanisation began in the 1970s, and in 1978 Kuraby was proposed as the site for a Commonwealth Games village. Little came of it, but the Kuraby Hotel (1973) probably confirmed that an urban location with railway station and the proposed Gateway Motorway was a coming development site. That proved to be the case in the late 1990s. A larger primary school was opened in 1972 and the original site near the station became a special school.

Kuraby originally extended east to Logan Road, the boundary between Brisbane City and Albert Shire. The moving of the municipal boundary to Millers Road resulted in part of Kuraby being detached and put in a new suburb, Underwood (Logan City).

Several housing estates were developed during the 2000s as Kuraby was recognised as a convenient location, with a local railway station and access to the Gateway Motorway and the Pacific Highway. In the late 1970s a shopping centre and a Big W store near the railway station were opened. A large site either side of the Bulimba Creek, with both introduced animal and plant species but remnant native species has been reserved. Named Wally Tate Park, it remembers the Kuraby station master (1922-58).

The climate is sub-tropical with relatively dry winters and hot humid summers. In practice one could throw a stick of wood into a creek one side of the suburb and eventually it would finish up in the Brisbane River whilst if one throws a stick in the opposite direction it would finish up in the Logan River. Both rivers eventually flow into Moreton Bay. Because Kuraby is situated between these two rivers it tends to have a somewhat dryer landscape than other parts of Brisbane. Rain tends to come up the Logan to the mountains [hills] behind Brisbane then back down the Brisbane River. The topography ranges from high hills with very poor soil to low, very fertile soil areas.

A number of parks are situated within the area these cater for all types of activities from sporting to leisure. The local council has reserved large tracts of native bush in the area surrounding many of these parks. This in turn has ensured that many of the wildlife species of the area survives.

The main area of Kuraby is situated on the southern boundary of the City of Brisbane. However, parts of the suburb come within Logan City. This situation makes Kuraby unique in terms of planning as each council has slightly different local government laws.

Kuraby has a diverse population mix of old and young. Some of the older residents can trace their families back to the early settlement of the area. A number of the local streets now bear their name. Many nationalities from different parts of the world now call Kuraby home. The Muslim community has a mosque in Kuraby while there is a Buddhist temple situated in a nearby suburb. Many other religions have their place of worship either in the suburb or in the surrounding suburbs.
