Wynnum – Suburb Profile

Wynnum, a residential suburb on Moreton Bay south of the mouth of the Brisbane River, is 15 km east-north-east of central Brisbane. It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal word describing the screw pine, a popular name for the Pandanus species, most of which are found in coastal, tidal stream or swampy environments. Unrelated to true pines or other conifers, the seed fruits were sometimes used by Aborigines for food.

Land sales first occurred in Wynnum in 1860. A track was formed in 1881 to the Hastings (later Wynnum) hotel north of the outlet of Wynnum Creek. Local government came under the Bulimba division which in 1888 was divided into the Balmoral division, and the Kianwanah division based at Wynnum. The following year the railway from Brisbane to Cleveland, running through Wynnum, was completed, coinciding with the opening of the Waterloo Bay Hotel. A Methodist church was built in 1890 and the Wynnum North and Wynnum Central State schools began in 1882 and 1896. In 1892 the divisional board’s name was changed to Wynnum. (It became a shire in 1902 and a town in 1913.)

In 1901 Miss Alice Greene, formerly a teacher at Rockhampton Girls’ Grammar, and her sister Anne opened Moreton Bay High School for Girls on a select site overlooking the shoreline. The school building was spacious and modern, beginning with six boarders and twenty day students. It built up a fine reputation, but in 1945, when Alice was in her early 80s, she presented the School to the Methodist church and it subsequently became incorporated as Moreton Bay College. Her brothers Samuel and John served as Mayors of Wynnum and both subsequently served on the Brisbane City Council, John as Lord Mayor from 1931 to 1934.

MARINE SUBURB

Wynnum was on the way to claiming some distinction as a marine suburb, as well as a place of relaxation and recreation. In addition to a foreshore esplanade the divisional board reserved space along the Wynnum Creek, naming it Kitchener Park in recognition of the visit of Lord Kitchener to advise on Australia’s defences. In 1910 the division was proclaimed a town, with municipal boundaries enclosing 27 sq km which extended to Tingalpa, south to Lota and north to Lytton and Bulwer Island. The municipality could thus accommodate the Wynnum and Manly Agricultural, Horticultural and Industries Society (1916), which in 1919 held its first show on the Memorial Park, a space reserved in memory of those who had served in the war.

The Wynnum and Manly School of Arts opened in Bay Terrace in 1913. The Terrace became the district’s main shopping area, situated in Wynnum South. A local gas works (1914) supplied public lighting and reticulated gas to householders and shops. Lighting of a different kind arrived with the opening of the Star picture theatre, Wynnum South, in 1915, which in a few years claimed ‘to present only the best first release productions, direct from leading city theatres’.
