Yeerongpilly – Suburb Profile

Yeerongpilly, a residential and industrial suburb on a railway junction, is seven km south of central Brisbane. It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal expression denoting water, perhaps a reference to the water holes on the Moolabin Creek or to the Brisbane River.

The earliest place of settlement was Rocky Water Holes (Rocklea) where the Crown Inn and a Primitive Methodist church were opened in 1862 and 1863. The district had been extensively denuded of native pine timber by the end of the 1850s, and mixed farming took its place, starting from the fertile Oxley Creek Valley and its Moolabin Creek tributary. In 1867 the Yeerongpilly provisional school was opened.

In 1875 the Brisbane to Ipswich railway line, passing through Yeerongpilly, was opened. Upon the introduction of rural local government to Queensland in 1879 the Yeerongpilly division was formed, a large rural area extending from South Brisbane to the Logan River and from Logan Road to Goodna and Greenbank in the west. As scattered settlement spread from Brisbane, parts of Yeerongpilly division were severed: the Stephens Shire (from South Brisbane to Rocklea) and the Sherwood Shire (west of Blunder Creek to Wacol) were created in 1886 and 1891. That left an entirely rural Yeerongpilly division, with the future suburb of Yeerongpilly in Stephens Shire. The divisions area was 450 sq km.

The division’s offices were in Rocky Water Holes (Rocklea) which, according to the Australian Handbook in 1904, might ‘be considered the metropolis of the division of Yeerongpilly … (with) two public houses, Primitive Methodist church, Presbyterian meeting house … and blacksmith’s and other shops’. Some of the downstream water holes were enclosed by the Brisbane Golf Club’s course when it was laid out in 1904. (The golf course is west of the railway line, and is in the present suburb of Yeerongpilly.)

The division’s southern rural part was crossed by the South Coast railway, extended from the Yeerongpilly rail junction in 1884. Dairy produce was conveyed to the Kingston butter factory (Logan), but even in the 1920s the Shire authorities thought that upwards of 30,000 acres of unoccupied land awaited the attention of orchardists and market gardeners. The Rocklea Agriculture and Industries Association Showground on Ipswich Road, a short way from the railway station, ensured them of an exhibition venue.

Yeerongpilly Shire, extending north from approximately the present-day Logan Motorway to Tarragindi, was incorporated into the greater Brisbane Council in 1925. Its census populations were 1313 (1911) and 3263 (1921).

The Yeerongpilly suburb was snugly positioned north of the Clapham railway transshipping depot, created to service the uniform railway gauge line (1930) from the border to South Brisbane. Increasing industrialisation to its south came with the Evans Deakin engineering workshops, the Archerfield Brisbane Airport (1931) and war time industry around Rocklea.
