Keperra – Suburb Profile

Keperra, a residential suburb on the Ferny Grove railway line, is nine km north-west of central Brisbane. The name is an Aboriginal word referring to a young man or a bora ring; a large bora ring has been nearly obliterated by earthworks at the Keperra golf club entry road.

Keperra is on Samford Road and borders the south bank of Kedron Brook. It had good upstream farmland and early European settlers, John and William Nicholson, built St Matthews Anglican church in 1869. The district, generally known as Grovely, was centred around the church and, later the Grovely railway station on the Ferny Grove/Dayboro line (1918).

In 1865 Thomas Price sold a large portion of land in Keperra to John and Mary Nicholsen who built a home and named it Groveley Lodge (the extra ‘e’ in the name was dropped in later years).The railway was built through the area in 1918 but it was originally a siding located near the western end of the Keperra Country Club. Capt. Robert H Cottam founded the Keperra Golf Club in 1931 and it was originally called the Enoggera Golf Club.

The railway station was named Keperra Station in 1932 and moved to its current site in 1956. In about 1940 a military camp was established on the slaughterhouse site. The army camp constructed many of the roads and much of the land was transferred to the Housing Commission for housing development in 1951.

In 1940 Grovely had a military camp and the prospect of spreading urbanisation brought a service reservoir to the district in 1954. In 1956 the Grovely primary school was opened. Keperra was the next (westerly) railway station (1932), a short walk away from the Keperra golf links (1931) which ran alongside Kedron Brook and across it into Arana Hills. In 1957 the Keperra post office was opened south of the railway station and the St William’s Catholic primary school in Dawson Parade was also opened. At the suburb’s south-east corner the Mitchelton high school was opened in 1956. There is a large Housing Commission estate near the Catholic school.

Keperra thus matured during the 1950s-60s, and by the 1970s had overtaken Grovely as the suburb’s name. Shopping was provided at local stores and at Brookside drive-in, two kilometres away in Mitchelton. In 2000 the Great Western Super Centre was opened on Samford Road, offering a supermarket and 55 shops. Somewhat on Keperra’s southern fringe, the shopping centre adjoins considerable undeveloped bushland, but opposite it the former drive-in cinema (1966) has been redeveloped as the Kingsgrove housing estate. The Keperra Sanctuary retirement village is east of the shopping centre, set in the 97 acres of undeveloped bushland. A public reserve, Keperra Bushland, is south of Kingsgrove.

Housing within the suburb ranges from modest post-war homes built from weatherboard and mainly located on the northern side of Samford Road and south of the railway to larger brick dwellings built during the 1980s and 1990s within the Kings Park Estate. The Estate began to be developed around 1988 in an area around Samford Road, Cobalt Street and Onyx Street. Properties in the southern sections (e.g. Balvenie Street) of the Estate date from the early 1990s.

A moderate segment of the population also lives within the large Keperra Sanctuary Retirement Village located on the south side of Samford Road, just east of the Great Western Shopping Centre.
