About Tingalpa

Get directions

Tingalpa is 10km from Brisbane CBD. Tingalpa Creek is probably how the suburb got its name. The creek was first surveyed in 1841 and originally named “Tingulpa”, believed to be a derivative of an Aboriginal term for a fat kangaroo. In 1863 a township site was surveyed on the west side of Tingalpa Creek, where Old Cleveland Road crossed the creek. However, it was never built on and by 1943, “Old Tingalpa” as it was known, was formally abolished. In the 1860s a new site was settled called New Tingalpa, away to the north west.
