Birkdale – Suburb Profile

Birkdale, a suburb facing the Waterloo Bay inlet on Moreton Bay, is 19 km east of central Brisbane. It was probably named after Birkdale, near Southport in Lancashire, by William Thorne, an early resident of neighbouring Thorneside. An early homestead known as Birkdale House (1892) is at 27 Roger Street.

Situated on the Brisbane to Cleveland railway line (1889), Birkdale had the benefit of rail transport for its farm produce. A post office was opened in 1892 and a school in 1916, but Birkdale did not develop as a village in the way that Cleveland or Wellington Point did: Pugh’s Queensland Directory listed only a store and a contractor in 1925, along with a school of arts and a Methodist church. A Church of England of an unusual cottage design was opened in 1934. There was a large poultry industry. With only 650 people in 1961, Birkdale was mostly rural, but by 1981 it had over 5000.

The Birkdale Fair drive-in shopping centre was opened in 1993 (supermarket and 22 shops). The Birkdale South primary school was opened in 1982 and a Catholic primary school opened in 1997. In 1986 a canal estate was commenced at the mouth of Tarradarrapin Creek where it enters the sheltered Waterloo Bay.

Birkdale has a sports complex and bushland refuge on the Judy Holt reserve, and linear parks along the waterways forming the Tarradarrapin Creek catchment. Birkdale’s western boundary is the Tingalpa Creek, where there is the Howeston Golf Course and a large area of undeveloped land.

On the whole it is a wealthy area featuring many large Victorian and Edwardian houses; many of the houses have not yet been broken up into individual flats, and still house families. The area is almost entirely residential, with mainly semi-detached houses as the norm. In the summer of 2003, the average property price was £149,550 (just under £10,000 less than the national average). This has risen to £200,844 in July 2005, more than £20,000 over the national mix-adjusted national average house price. The area has become a popular area with footballers from local Merseyside or Lancashire clubs.

The village centre (still commonly referred to as Birkdale Village) is on Liverpool Road and features a variety of (mostly local) shops. Birkdale railway station is situated on the Northern Line of the Merseyrail network, that links Southport to Liverpool.

Despite its small size, Birkdale receives a great deal of sporting attention once every few years as it plays host to The Open Championship. It was last played at the Royal Birkdale golf course in July 2008. To lesser fame, the home ground of the Southport and Birkdale Cricket Club on Trafalgar Road is used for county level cricket matches approximately once a year. Southport and Birkdale squash club, also play here and are in the North West Counties Squash League. Red Rum the legendary racehorse who was trained by Ginger McCain had his stables in Upper Aughton Road in Birkdale, while a horse named after the village took part and finished tenth in the 2002 Grand National. The largest junior football club in Southport, Birkdale United AFC, played a crucial part in the footballing education of famous Premiership footballers such as Jack Rodwell, Dominic Matteo, Shaun Teale and Paul Dalglish on their way, still has its home in the village and boasts teams for boys from the age of 6 and girls from the age of 7 through to open age teams. The club was also presented the FA’s highest accolade in January 2008, being the only FA Charter Community Club in Southport.
