Corinda – Suburb Profile

Corinda, an interwar residential suburb, is nine km south-west of central Brisbane. It was possibly named after a local property owned by Sir Arthur Palmer, which he named after his Corinda pastoral station near Aramac.

Corinda was first settled in the 1860s as a small farming community. Among the original settlers was the Francis family who in 1862 purchased 21 acres, which extended from the Brisbane River to Francis Lookout, a local heritage listed[2] landmark on Dewar Terrace. Francis Lookout survives to this day, and includes a small burial ground opened in 1862.[3] Its ten graves include those of some of the pioneer settlers. The oldest of the graves is of Clement Francis who died in 1863. The lychgate, erected by Angela Francis, dates to 1902. Most of the original older-style Queenslander homes date back to the colonial period and were built high on the hills around the lookout.

The first rail line opened in 1874. A small commercial district on Oxley Road gradually grew around it. The Corinda School of Arts (now municipal library) is one of the earliest surviving buildings on this strip and is a small timber structure built in 1895. The commercial district rapidly developed after the 1920s. Many large bungalow styled homes were built on the floodplain toward Oxley Creek during this time.

The Corinda RSL was established in 1964 and now trades as the Sherwood Services Club[4]. With the opening of Coles Supermarkets, the commercial centre has continued to develop and extend westward.

The suburb experienced a landslip during the 1974 Brisbane flood which affected more than 20 houses.

Corinda has the Brisbane River as its western boundary and the Oxley Creek on its east. The landscape rises sharply from the river and only a narrow margin of land was flooded in 1893 and 1974. The suburb is slightly more flood prone on the east, mainly near the high school. With hilly ground on the west, it is that part which is generally more favoured in the real estate market.

An early farming family chose the elevated spot now known as Francis Lookout as a cemetery (c1863). The lookout, at the corner of Dewar Terrace and Hilda Street, is listed on the Queensland heritage register. Twelve years later the Brisbane to Ipswich railway line was built through Corinda, and nine years after then a branch line was opened from Corinda to the South Brisbane wharves (Stanley Street). The new line was needed to transport Ipswich coal to the wharves, and Corinda was known as South Brisbane Junction until 1888.

During the 1890s Corinda’s social infrastructure took shape with cricket and tennis clubs (1892, 1893) and a school of arts (1895). The Sherwood divisional board met in Corinda. Schools came somewhat later: primary education had been provided in neighbouring Oxley and Sherwood since the 1870s, and it was the Catholic Church which opened the first school in Corinda at Our Lady of Sacred Heart convent in 1917. It is now St Joseph’s primary school. The Anglican Church followed with St Aiden’s girls’ school (1-12) in 1929. State schools were opened in 1927 (Corinda primary) and 1960 (high school). The high school’s enrolment peaked at 1590 in 1964.
