About Tennyson

Tennyson is 7km south of Brisbane city. The area was originally named “Softstone” by James Strong, one of the original settlers, but by 1897 the name was changed to Tennyson after the British poet Alfred Tennyson. The Queensland Tennis Centre, which hosts the annual Brisbane International Tennis Tournament, is built on the site of the demolished Tennyson Power Station.
