Coorparoo – Suburb Profile

Coorparoo is an inner suburb of Brisbane, four km south-east of central Brisbane. The name probably derived from an Aboriginal word describing Norman Creek and its tributaries. Coorparoo is on the eastern side of Norman Creek, a southern tributary of the Brisbane River.

Access to the Coorparoo area in the post-European era was initially by crossing over Norman Creek, at Old Cleveland Road, Stones Corner. A bridge was erected around 1856, which coincided with the sale of land subdivisions averaging 50 acres, most of which became semi-rural estates.

In 1875 the name ‘Coorparoo’ was adopted by popular assent, and a state primary school opened in Old Cleveland Road in 1876. Three years later, with suburban Brisbane pressing against Norman Creek, the whole of the area to the east of the creek was incorporated as the Bulimba Divisional Board. Coorparoo was administered as Subdivision 3.

A second bridge across Norman Creek was opened at Stanley Street in 1886, in response to Coorparoo’s increasing urbanisation, and in 1888 the Coorparoo Shire was formed by severance from Bulimba following local agitation. The new shire included Stones Corner and parts of Holland Park and Camp Hill. The following year the Cleveland railway line opened through the northern part of the shire.

In 1886 a Wesleyan church was opened. Athletic endeavour followed the spiritual several years later, with the formation of various local sporting bodies: Coorparoo Cricket Club (1888), Coorparoo Racecourse (1891), and a tennis club (1893). The timber Wesleyan church remained on Cavendish Road, its shingle roof and bell tower an area landmark. It was replaced in 1959 by the present brick building, now a Uniting Church.

In 1902 an electric tram service began, running along Logan Road to Stones Corner. Most of Coorparoo lay beyond convenient reach of either tram or railway, until the Stones Corner line was extended to Chatsworth Road in 1914, and a new tramline along Cleveland Road to the primary school opened in 1915. Land subdivisions began immediately, including a notable estate the garden village ‘Surrey Hill’ in Welwyn Crescent and Letchworth Street. Most houses are high-set Queenslanders, in an unadorned interwar style.

By the mid-1920s most of the shire was within 600 metres of a tram or train service, and in 1925 Coorparoo Shire was incorporated in the Greater Brisbane Council. The original Shire Hall, built in 1892 next to the primary school in Cavendish Road, became a school of arts and later an RSL hall (and is listed on the Queensland heritage register).

Methodist and Anglican churches were built in the 1880s, but it was the Catholic Church which developed the strongest presence, with St James at Stones Corner (1913), Our Lady of Mt Carmel, the Regina Caelli parish (1953), and a fourth church at Camp Hill (also 1953). At various times there have been four Catholic schools operating.
