About Coopers Plains
Coopers Plains is an outer suburb of Brisbane, Australia. It is 11 kilometres (7 mi) south-west of the CBD. The suburb is home to the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Hospital.
The locality was originally called Cowper's Plains. It was named by John Oxley after Dr Henry Cowper, Assistant Surgeon-in-Charge at the Moreton Bay Settlement from 1823 to 1832. A convict settlement was established at Cowper's Plains in 1828. The name was corrupted and by 1860 the area was known as Cooper's Plains. By 1877 it was known as Coopers Plains. The first post office opened in 1876.
