About Rothwell

Get directions

Home of the Redcliffe airport, Rothwell is 28 kilometres north of Brisbane. It was officially named in 1970 after past president of the Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ) Thomas Rothwell, who in 1921 proposed a memorial road to commemorate World War I soldiers. This would become what is now known as Anzac Avenue – the longest memorial avenue in Queensland. Rothwell has a growing business district and is set for the construction of its own train station in 2016 as part of the Moreton Bay Rail Link project.
