Geebung Real Estate
Geebung is a postwar suburb situated just 12km north of the Brisbane CBD. Generally a quiet and peaceful suburb, Geebung made headlines in 2013 with the discovery of a 50-million-year-old fossil more than 15 metres underground. The area has plenty more surprises waiting under the surface, if you know where to look.
Geebung was actually first known as Geebong, after the Personia trees and shrubs. The name is believed to have been changed to Geebung following a series of handwritten letters being mistakenly delivered to Geelong.
This suburb got off to a slow start, as the nearby North Coast railway line was built for rural purposes and so did not aid settlement. 1920, a progress association of residents formed to better develop the area, which led to the building of the Geebung Memorial Hall within three years, and a bus service to the nearest tram station within two.
It was only after World War II that Geebung really took off. Areas that had been used for army purposes were rezoned as industrial, and the combined population of Geebung and Zillmere increased from 7,000 to 18,000 in only twelve years. A host of services and businesses followed, including two primary schools and many local shops.
