Redbank – Suburb Profile

Redbank, once a village and now an eastern suburb of Ipswich, is on the Brisbane to Ipswich railway line and is 22 km south-west of central Brisbane. It is close to the Brisbane River, opposite Moggill. The river bank’s red soil inspired the name, although it is unclear as to whether the name was bestowed by the explorer Major Edmund Lockyer during his 1825 expedition, or later farm settlers.

The first European settlement in the Redbank/Redbank Plains area was a convict sheep farm established in the late 1820s. Free settlement was allowed from 1842, and farming settlers increasingly took up lots from the 1850s on the rich alluvial plains. Maize and potatoes were early crops, though cotton was grown in significant quantities through the 1850s and 1860s, as local farmers sought to exploit global shortages and a booming price occasioned by the American Civil War.

The first recorded coal mine in Queensland started at Redbank in 1843, and further activity followed in the late 1850s, with a small operation begun by partners John ‘Tinker’ Campbell and Robert Towns. In June 1861 disgruntled miners confronted Campbell seeking a pay rise; rebuffed, they went on Queensland’s first strike. Nine years later flooding did permanently what industrial action had temporarily, closing the mine, despite claims that it contained further coal deposits. The site was reworked in the 1880s, and in 1910 Redbank Collieries was formed to exploit a site about 700 metres south of the Redbank railway station. A spur line transported coal to the Redbank railway-station junction (opened in 1874), which by then was a busy location with coal brought in from the Bundamba-Redbank railway loop (1904) built to carry coal from the better quality Bundamba, Blackstone and Aberdene coal fields. The Redbank Colliery employed 40 men (1916) but an explosion in 1928 and concerns about the quality of the coal led to the mine’s closure in 1932.

The residential enclave of Redbank was one of the first suburbs to be established in Ipswich and over recent times has experienced strong growth. The suburb has a long industrial history. Future residential development is a certainty in the surrounding area after the Southeast Queensland regional plan identified Ipswich shire as a population growth spot going forward. There are a number of parks available in the surrounding area with a boat ramp for Brisbane River Canoe Trail located in nearby Goodna.

The massive nearby Redbank Plaza is the place where most residents head to do their weekly grocery shopping. There is a large number of primary and secondary schools in the area.
Employment opportunities can be found in the surrounding area, however given its close proximity to trains and the Ipswich Motorway many residents commute to Brisbane or surrounding areas.
