Calamvale – Suburb Profile

Calamvale, a residential suburb, is 17 km south of central Brisbane. It was named after the Calam family whose homestead site is now occupied by the Calamvale Hotel. In the early 1970s James Calam was the district’s oldest European resident, and his son was active in forming a local progress association and having a hall built.

Calamvale is close to the Karawatha nature reserve. The suburb has a medium-high average income per household. The schools in Calamvale include Calamvale Community College (which combines a primary and a secondary school), Stretton State College (Prep year to Year 10), and Calamvale Special School.

The size of Calamvale is approximately 7 km². It has nine parks covering nearly 1% of the total area. There are three childcare centres located in Calamvale. The population of Calamvale in 1996 was 6053; by 2001 it had risen to 9011, and by 2004 the population was 9836. The predominant age group in Calamvale is 20-29 years.

Households in Calamvale are primarily couples with children who are likely to be repaying between $1000 and $1200 per month on mortgage repayments. In general, people in Calamvale work in professional occupations. In 1996, 71% of the homes in Calamvale were owner-occupied, compared with 67% in 2001. The median house price for the calendar year 2005 was $359,750.

In the mid-1960s Calamvale was an outlying part of Acacia Ridge, but the name had caught on with the hall, a bush fire brigade and a service station. Calamvale primary school was opened in 1955.

In 1970 a new housing estate, Ridgewood, was proposed in the area between the interstate railway line and Beaudesert Road. Ridgewood’s area encompassed two future suburbs, Algester and Calamvale, which were formally approved in 1975.

Calamvale is bisected by Beaudesert Road. The eastern part was substantially developed by 2005, but the western part had considerable unsubdivided space. It includes the Calamvale Community College (formerly the primary school), which adjoins the Calamvale marketplace shops, just over the southern boundary. Calamvale Village shops are in Kameruka Street, north-east of the school. Sunnybank Plaza shops are just over the suburb’s northern boundary from the Calamvale Hotel.

Calamvale has a relatively youthful population, the median age being 32 years (2006) compared with 37 years for Australia.

Calamvale was named after James Calam, an early settler and prominent landowner in the area. The Calam family built their homestead on a hill at the top of Calam Road near Beaudesert Road. The area was known as Calamvale long before it was officially listed as a suburb in 1972. In 1984, the Calams sold the homestead to the McGuire family, who built the Calamvale Hotel on the land. Urbanization took place in the early 1990s, and development took place in several stages.

Calamvale has shopping centres at each end of Kameruka Street, and a larger marketplace with a Woolworths supermarket on the corner of Nottingham Road. A new shopping centre, Calamvale Central has recently opened opposite the Sunnybank Hills Shoppingtown Complex and next to the Calamvale Hotel. It contains a Big W discount department store and another Woolworths supermarket. Directly across from Calamvale Central is Sunnybank Hills Shoppingtown, which contains another Woolworths and a Pick and Pay Hypermarket.
