About Rocklea

Get directions

Rocklea is about 12km south of Brisbane. It was named after the Rocky Water Holes, a watercourse that rises in the Toohey Forest Park in Nathan and enters the Oxley Creek near its junction with Brisbane Golf Course. The name Rocklea was officially adopted in 1884 for the railway station, derived from the water holes and softened with “lea”, the old English word describing a meadow or piece of arable land.
