About Carseldine

Carseldine is a suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Carseldine had a population of 9,541 people.

Carseldine is about 16 kilometres (10 mi) north and about a half-hour drive from the Central Business District of Brisbane.[citation needed]

The suburb is bounded by the North Coast railway line to the east with the Carseldine railway station (27°20′50″S 153°01′44″E / 27.3472°S 153.0288°E / -27.3472; 153.0288 (Carseldine railway station)) serving the suburb. Gympie Road enters the suburb from the south (Aspley) and exits to the north-west (Bald Hills).

Carseldine is a mainly residential suburb in the north of Brisbane.[citation needed]

At its northern boundary is the Carseldine Homemaker Centre. This Homemaker Centre includes one of north Brisbane's three Bunnings Warehouse stores, which became a part of the Carseldine Homemaker Centre in 2002 (Bunnings previously traded individually there for about 4 years). There is also a community-based shopping centre anchored by a Woolworths supermarket on Beams Road and two convenience centres, one beside the railway station and the other on the western side of the suburb. Carseldine also includes two plant nurseries (one small and one large, both located along Beams Road), Club Coops and the Aspley Hornets AFL Club. Carseldine Police Station, an $8.4 million facility, located on the corner of Gympie Road and Denver Road commenced operations on 29 September 2009.[citation needed]

Carseldine was named on 16 August 1975 by the Queensland Place Names Board after the fencing contractor William Carseldine (also written as Castledean) who immigrated in 1854 in the sailing ship Monsoon and settled in Bald Hills in 1858, also owning land in the Carseldine area.

North Brisbane College of Advanced Education opened in 1975 with the pre-existing Kedron Park Teachers College and with a new campus at Carseldine (27°20′57″S 153°01′27″E / 27.3491°S 153.0241°E / -27.3491; 153.0241 (QUEENSLAND UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY (CARSELDINE CAMPUS))). It later[when?] became a campus of the Queensland Institute of Technology and then as a campus of the Queensland University of Technology (QUT). In November 2008, QUT relocated its Carseldine activities to its Kelvin Grove and Gardens Point campuses. The site was vacant for four years when QUT failed to find a replacement education provider, but was adapted to house state public servants in 2012. In 2016, Deputy Premier Jackie Trad announced that the site would be redeveloped as the Carseldine Urban Village, with 900 homes and commercial and retail space.

In the 2016 census, Carseldine had a population of 9,541 people, 52.9% female and 47.1% male. The median age of the Carseldine population was 40 years of age, 2 years above the Australian median. Children aged under 15 years made up 16.7% of the population and people aged 65 years and over made up 22.1% of the population. 64.1% of people living in Carseldine were born in Australia, compared to the national average of 66.7%; the next most common countries of birth were India 4.6%, New Zealand 4.1%, England 3.1%, Philippines 1.9% and South Africa 1.6%. 73.8% of people only spoke English at home.
