Gordon Park – Suburb Profile

Gordon Park, a residential suburb is 6 km north of central Brisbane. It is U-shaped, bordered on its south and east by Kedron Brook.

In 1890 the Gordon Park housing estate was put up for sale, the name being inspired by the exploits and death of General Sir Charles Gordon (1833-85) at Khartoum, Sudan. Two of the estate’s main thoroughfares were Gordon and Khartoum Streets, the latter having local shops and public facilities.

Although subdivided in the nineteenth century, Gordon Park was an interwar suburb. A Baptist church, beginning as a tent mission in 1926, was gradually established in Khartoum Street. By the postwar years Khartoum Street also had a progress association hall, the Gordon Park kindergarten and a few shops. There were Methodist and Catholic churches in Beaconsfield Terrace, the latter dating from pre war years.

In 1940 a branch tram service from Lutwyche Road was run along Bradshaw, Richmond and Stafford Roads to Gamelin Crescent. It was replaced by buses in 1969.

Gordon Park was reduced from a suburb to a locality during the 1980s-90s, but regained suburban status in the late 1990s. Of its three churches, the Baptist and St Carthages Catholic continue. For parks and recreation, Kedron Brook has linear parklands.

Aboriginal History

The Turrbal clan occupied the northern side of the Brisbane River. This clan was often referred to by the “whites” as the “Duke of York’s” clan. There were camping grounds around the Breakfast Creek area and the explorers John Oxley and Allan Cunningham met members of the clan at the mouth of the Creek in 1824.

The main encampment of the Turrbal clan was in “Yorks Hollow”. This gully passes through Victoria Park and the Royal National Association Showgrounds at Bowen Hills. In 1858 two Aborigines, Dalinkua and Dalpie from the Breakfast Creek area, wrote letters to The Moreton Bay Courier protesting about the treatment their people received at the hands of the white settlers.

Urban Development

The Gordon Estate – Lutwyche of 264 blocks went to auction on 25 September 1886. Gordon Park Estate of 1063 allotments was advertised for auction on 13 December 1890. The suburb was named after General Gordon who was the hero of the eight-month siege of Khartoum in the Sudan in the late 19th century. Most of the names in the suburb relate to General Gordon, the armies he served with, and their sphere of operation. Trams ran to Gordon Park connecting it with Brisbane until they were progressively withdrawn from use, finally ceasing all operations on 13 April 1969. In the mid 1980s residents pushed to retain the locality name after concern that it could fade out of use.
