Nundah Real Estate
Nundah is a rare jewel, being both a historically significant area of Brisbane’s North, and an excellent place for families in its own right. There are so many beautiful homes to buy or rent, and a location offering plenty of things to do. Transport to and from Brisbane CBD is convenient and reliable.
Prior to European settlement, Nundah and the surrounding area were inhabited by the Turrbul tribe. Many significant Aboriginal sites dot the landscape, including Dinah Island, where Brisbane’s last traditional Aboriginal burial took place. Nundah gained its current name from the local Aboriginal dialect’s word for “chain of water holes”.
In 1838, German missionaries named the area Zion and built its first permanent settlement, with the aim of converting the Turrbul to Christianity. The name later changed to German Station, before eventually becoming Nundah. The mission closed in 1843 due to limited success, and the heritage listed First Free Settlers Monument on the corner of Sandgate Road and Wood Street commemorates the German settlers.
Nundah’s rich history has given it many more heritage listings. These include Corpus Christi Church, Nundah Cemetery, Nundah Air Raid Shelter, Nundah Fire Station, Toombul Shire Hall and Workers’ Dwelling No.1. This dwelling was the first of its kind built in 1910, and stands as a testament to Queensland’s classic timber-and-tin construction style.
