Belmont – Suburb Profile

Belmont, a former shire, and now a residential and rural/residential suburb, is 12 km south-east of central Brisbane, although travel by Old Cleveland Road or the Gateway Motorway is considerably further. It was named after an estate (1870s) owned by August Bernecker, set in a fertile landscape along the Bulimba Creek. Bernecker Street, Carina, was once part of Belmont
The shire extended from Boundary Road, Coorparoo, to Capalaba, and the Bulimba Creek flowed through it, slightly west of its mid point. The Belmont primary school on Old Cleveland Road, a kilometre east of the creek, was opened in 1876. (The school is now in the suburb of Carindale).

Local government began with the Bulimba division (1879), which in 1888 lost its eastern and western parts as Coorparoo and Kianawah (Wynnum) Shires. The remaining part constituted the shire of Belmont, although it was called Bulimba until 1894. Its area was 27 sq miles. The shire’s main village was Carina, which held a primary school (1917) and the shire offices. In the absence of actual or likely public transport, the shire financed a tramline from Belmont to Norman Park, via Seven Hills, in 1912. It failed to induce saleable land subdivisions and ran at a loss. In 1925 the Greater Brisbane Council absorbed Belmont Shire, and the tramline closed the following year. In addition to dairy and poultry farmers, there were two wool scourers, a fellmongery and a tannery.

The district of Belmont had a north-west boundary at the junction of Creek and Old Cleveland Roads and ran west to Capalaba. In 1948 its western side very nearly gained a long-wanted public transport link when the Old Cleveland Road tramline was extended from Camp Hill to Mayfield Road, Carina. A trolley bus (1960) completed the journey to Carina. That, along with increasing private car ownership, brought about residential development, creating the suburb of Carindale. Scrub Road and, later, the Gateway Motorway (1986) created an obvious boundary, truncating Belmont to an area east of the motorway. On its other borders, Chandler, Burbank and Mackenzie were created.

Belmont has a residential area in its north-west, adjoining the motorway and Tingalpa. There are a hotel and a small drive-in shopping centre. In other parts there are the Grassdale Country Club, two rifle ranges and Mount Petrie (170m).
The local indigenous people hunted and camped within the creeks and hills of Belmont, both before and after white settlement of the area. A corroboree ground existed on banks of Bulimba Creek and mineral springs near Mount Petrie were a popular camping spot for the Aboriginal people

Andrew Petrie had reported that fine timber existed in the area. The Hoop Pine brought timber cutters to the area in the 1850s and by the 1860s and 1870s the cleared land near the creeks and the rich soils from the cleared forests were used to grow sugar cane. As sugar production declined in southern Queensland, farmers moved to growing pineapples, bananas and small crops including tomatoes, potatoes and grapes. Dairies and fodder farms were also located in the area.

August Charles Frederick Bernecker gave the name Belmont to his new estate outside of Brisbane and this name spread to the rest of the area. The Belmont Division was split from the Bulimba Division in 1894 and by 1901 this became the Belmont Shire. Belmont Shire was a larger area than Belmont today with parts now included in the suburb of Carindale and other suburbs.

From 25 May 1912 the Belmont Shire Council operated the Belmont Tramway, a 3 foot 6 inches (1,067 mm) gauge steam tramway from Norman Park railway station to a terminus near the present State School. The line closed following the amalgamation of Shire into the City of Greater Brisbane in 1925.
