About Upper Kedron

Get directions

Upper Kedron is 12km north west of central Brisbane. It lies along Cedar Creek, a tributary of Kedron Brook, which was named by German Moravian missionaries who settled downstream at Nundah in 1838. (Kedron is a valley and river frequently mentioned in Biblical accounts.) The hilly, timbered country along the Cedar Creek catchment was settled for timber-cutting and small farms. A provisional school was opened in 1875 to serve both Upper Kedron and Ferny Grove.
