Karana Downs – Suburb Profile

Karana Downs is a rural/residential suburb 23 km south-west of central Brisbane. It is bounded on its west and north by Mt Crosby Road and on its east and south by the Brisbane River.

Originally part of Mount Crosby, Karana Downs was named in 1975 at the suggestion of a real estate developer. At that time, Karana Downs was part of Moreton Shire (Ipswich City), but it has been in Brisbane City Council’s area since 1998.

Karana Downs’ early history is described in the Mount Crosby entry, and the Mount Crosby primary school (1882, rebuilt 1884) is just within its western boundary. The Karana Downs Country Club golf course was part of the developer’s original plan and is entered via College Road from Colleges Crossing on the Brisbane River. College Road also has a small shopping centre, and travel beyond it and the golf course leads to the riverside Kookaburra Park, one of several large public reserves in Karana Downs.

The people of Karana Downs are represented in the Queensland Parliament by Bruce Flegg the Liberal Party member for Moggill.

The suburb is serviced by Mt Crosby State School, built in 1984. Karana Downs was developed from the areas of Kholo, Lake Manchester, and Mount Crosby with 5 square kilometres of land being divided in 1973.

As of the 2001 Census, there were 5,177 people residing in Karana Downs. Between the 1996 census and 2001 census, there was a 0.3% population increase.

Originally a suburb of the Shire of Moreton then later Ipswich, in the 1990s residents lobbied to be integrated into Brisbane City Council, and in 1998 the suburb was rezoned to Brisbane.

Due to the distance of Karana Downs to the centre of Brisbane, the suburb lacks a public bus service, however, in late 2006, a taxi van with a capacity of 10 people, started ferrying people every 20 minutes from 6:30am to 9am from Karana Downs, and nearby Mount Crosby and Anstead, to Bellbowrie, where commuters can link up with the city council bus service.


An examination of a street directory shows the open spaces, Brisbane International golf course and gully watercourses. In accordance with expectations, they were flooded in January 2011.

In Karana Downs 97.6% of dwellings are separate houses, compared with 74.8% in Australia (2006). Incomes are above average, $628 per resident per week compared with $466 for Australia (2006). Karana Downs’ census population in 2006 was 3840.
