For a conveniently located suburb with great natural beauty, Boondall is the place to be.
Located 15 kms north of the Brisbane CBD, Boondall began in 1915 as a residential estate named “College Hill”. This derived from the fact it originally was part of Nudgee due to the proximity to nearby Nudgee College. After lobbying for a state school,the Nudgee College Progress Association changed their name when the local train station was called Boondall and this flowed through to the opening of the new state school Boondall Primary in 1925. The name “Boondall” derives from the Aboriginal word meaning crooked creek or referring to an aboriginal food cunjevoi lily. The college, Sandgate railway and bridge across Cabbage Tree Creek made this area very appealing for European settlement encouraging the growth of the area.
