About Ellen Grove

Ellen Grove is an outer south-western suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Ellen Grove had a population of 2,906 people.

The southern boundary of the suburb is partially marked by the Logan Motorway. The Centenary Highway passes through the suburb from north to south. The Richlands and Inala reservoirs were built in the suburb to increase water pressure for residents in the surrounding suburbs.[citation needed]

Ellen Grove was subdivided for housing around 1959, with the name of the suburb gazetted in 1962 due to lobbying from the Ellen Grove Progress Association. The subdivision were between 2 and 4 acres (0.81 and 1.62 ha) in area with no services provided.

The owner of the original land was R.P. Spinks who had a daughter named Ellen Dabing. She often played with local Aboriginals in a grove of trees along Bullockhead Creek. The area became known as Ellen's Grove.

A portion of the suburb of Carole Park had since been annexed to form part of the suburb of Ellen Grove as part of a Brisbane City Council and Ipswich City Council redistribution assignment, and in 2009, the suburb was extended both to the north and south, increasing the population significantly.

In the 2011 census, Ellen Grove recorded a population of 2,529 people, 51% female and 49% male. The median age of the Ellen Grove population was 28 years of age, 9 years below the Australian median. 55.9% of people living in Ellen Grove were born in Australia, compared to the national average of 69.8%; the next most common countries of birth were New Zealand 5.5%, Vietnam 5.4%, Samoa 2.9%, England 2.1%, Philippines 1.2%. 59.3% of people spoke only English at home; the next most popular languages were 9.8% Vietnamese, 5.3% Samoan, 1% Kirundi (Rundi), 1% Mandarin, 0.9% Arabic.
