Mansfield – Suburb Profile

Mansfield, one of a group of three residential suburbs around Mount Gravatt named after Queensland public figures, is 11 km south-east of central Brisbane. Named in 1967, it remembers Sir Alan Mansfield (1902-80), who was Chief Justice (1956-66) and Governor of Queensland (1966-72).

Mansfield lay between Mount Gravatt East and Bulimba Creek, and its eastern boundary was later extended in part beyond the creek to the Gateway motorway (1986). At one time Sir Alan Mansfield had lived in the area near the Mount Gravatt East primary school, south-east of the corner of Newnham and Wecker Roads. During the interwar years most of the land was subdivided for seven to ten acre farms. Mount Gravatt was an early postwar suburb and Mount Gravatt East followed in the 1950s; its primary school was opened in 1955 and within ten years much of the modern street layout in Mansfield was defined. Land was reserved for education, which opened with Mansfield primary (1970) and Mansfield high (1974). Further away, on the east side of Bulimba Creek, the Christian Outreach College was opened in 1978.

The mid-1960s street layout included Cresthaven Drive and several adjoining streets with Aboriginal names. The Cresthaven estate was built by the State Housing Commission. In the early 1980s the private-sector Green Meadows estate was built, reputedly the place where the new-rich set up house. Gretna Green estate in the north of Mansfield was developed by a Bruce Small company.

Mansfield has linear parklands along Bulimba Creek, including Cresthaven Park. There is a shopping centre in Aminya Street and regional facilities in Upper Mount Gravatt. In addition to the schools already mentioned there is the Brisbane Adventist College (1966). There is a large industrial estate on Mansfield’s western boundary and extensive parklands along Bulimba Creek.

Mansfield has a large market square and around the market a large commercial centre including a museum, the Palace Theatre and numerous pubs, bars and night clubs. It has also a new indoor market which is nearing completion.

Mansfield was originally the home of Mansfield Brewery, once the largest independent brewer in the UK. The brewery was acquired by Wolverhampton & Dudley Breweries for £253m in October 1999, with production of the Mansfield range of ales moving to other parts of the country. The brewery’s assets were later sold to Pubmaster Ltd and the former site of the brewery is due for redevelopment. In the 1980s, Mansfield Bitter was advertised with a photograph of then US president Ronald Reagan and the tagline “He may be president of the most powerful nation on Earth but he’s never had a pint of Mansfield”; “Not much matches Mansfield” was also used. Mansfield was also the location of an Irn-Bru factory, owned by the Scottish drinks company A. G. Barr, production ceased in January 2011 when A. G. Barr decided to close the factory. The brewery was demolished in late 2008 and the land is for sale.

Mansfield is a market town and has a 700-year old town centre market that operates various stalls on various days of the week. In the centre of the market square there is a buttercross. Due partly to economic struggles and thefts, the market has lost some traders. There are however still many interesting stalls on Mansfield Market, which sell a variety of items such as electronics, household items, entertainment items like music and games, clothing and a couple of greengrocer stalls selling a wide array of fresh produce from the local area. On Tuesdays the market takes on the tone of a flea market selling second hand items and antiques. The flea market is very popular among locals. On the third Tuesday of each month, the market is host to a special farmers market, which sells a wide variety of locally produced produce, such as a large variety of cheeses, cakes, fresh vegetables and fruits grown on local farmland, eggs produced by local farmers and many other farmer’s market themed products. On the second Tuesday of each month, there is a charity market, which donates revenue to various charities. Mansfield District Council have created a variety of different markets to provide variety and interest for the town and to draw in visitors from other areas to boost the local economy.
