McDowall – Suburb Profile

McDowall, a residential suburb, is immediately east of the Bunyaville State Forest Park and 11 km north-west of central Brisbane. It was named after an early farmer in the adjoining suburb of Everton Park.

The first sign of urban development in McDowall was a grid of streets north-west of the intersection of Hamilton and Trouts Roads (1960s-80s). That was absorbed by the Chermside Hills public reserve. Real urbanisation began south of Hamilton Road, and McDowall grew from a population of about 2500 in 1980 to 6500 in 2001.

McDowall primary school opened in 1975 and ten years later a drive-in shopping centre, Flockton Plaza, was opened on the suburb’s southern boundary. Like a similar, but later, centre at the corner of Beckett and Hamilton Roads, Flockton Plaza has a supermarket and other specialty stores and services. Northside Christian College, also in Flockton Road, opened in 1985, along with its Assembly of God Church. Its enrolment in 2004 exceeded 1250. Next door is the North West Private Hospital (1984).

Cabbage Tree Creek flows north-easterly through McDowall, adjoined for most of its course by linear reserves and the large Chermside Hills Reserve.

McDowall State School, which opened in January 1975, was named before the suburb itself. It was named in honour of Colonel John McDowall, who was a distinguished early-settler of the area. As the population grew, the Brisbane City Council considered naming the suburb Annand after Colonel Frederick Annand. This was disapproved of by local residents, who wanted the suburb to be named after the newly-opened school. The name “McDowall” was therefore accepted for the area by the Place Names Board of Queensland in 1975.

The bushland was protected by Greenbelt designation in 1950s when the local area was subdivided, and has been managed by council since 1972.

McDowall’s earliest housing establishments were built through the 1970’s and very few houses in McDowall were built before then. More housing was later built in the 1980’s and early 1990’s, whereas defence housing was later developed during the early 21st century.

All of McDowall’s residential developments are within close proximity to either one of McDowall’s two community-based shopping centres. The North-West Plaza is located on the southern end of McDowall (which is currently under refurbishment and will be completed with a Woolworths supermarket in 2012), whereas McDowall Village shopping centre is located on the northern end of McDowall and is anchored by an IGA supermarket. Major shopping centres that are local to McDowall include Brookside Shopping Centre, Stafford City Shopping Centre and Westfield Chermside.Schools that serve the McDowall area include McDowall State School , Craigslea State School , Craigslea State High School , Northside Christian College  and the Queen of Apostles Chuter St campus. A number of bus services also travel through the area going to local shopping centres such as Chermside, Aspley and Brisbane City.
