About Stafford

Get directions

Stafford is 6km from Brisbane CBD and was originally called Happy Valley. It is possible that its eventual name name originates from the fact that Sir Thomas Brisbane, for whom our capital city is named, was an officer in the Staffordshire Regiment – a Stafford Knot is featured on the city’s coat of arms. A public move to rename the area was approved in 1975.
