Greenslopes is a suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2021 census, Greenslopes had a population of 7,941 people.
It is 6.0 kilometres (3.7 mi) by road south-east of the Brisbane GPO and is mostly residential with some commercial and light industrial areas.
Greenslopes lies 6.0 kilometres (3.7 mi) by road south of the Brisbane GPO. There is some slight variety in the terrain, with low hills in the east and south sloping down to the flood plain of Norman Creek, which curls around the western and northern edges of the suburb on its way to join the Brisbane River at Norman Park.
The major roads are:
Stephens Mountain is the south-west of the suburb, rising to 55 metres (180 ft) (). It is located between the Greenslopes Private Hospital located on a ridge leading east from its highest point, and the Greenslopes busway station and the Pacific Motorway to the west. The hill is low and its highest points are still covered in scrub. Norman Creek drains the areas surrounding the mountain.
Parts of the current suburb were originally opened for settlement under names such as the Dunellan, Thompson and Mount Pleasant Estates. There is still a Dunellan Street in the suburb, adjacent to the state school.
Greenslopes was named after an early estate in the area. The estate was owned by Frederick Wecker, who purchased the land in 1857 and named it after the area's green pastures.
In July 1887, "Baynes' Paddock", comprising 471 allotments, was advertised to be auctioned by Arthur Martin & Co. The allotments for sale were situated along Logan Road; Cornwall Street; Ernest Street; Beatrice Street; Vera Street; Logan Street; Adelaine Street (now Juliette Street); Reuben Street (now Zillah Street); Victor Street (now Flora Street); Arnold Street (now Lincoln Street) and Rita Street (now Regina Street). A map advertising the auction includes a local sketch that shows the nearby bus stands and South Brisbane Railway.
Greenslopes formed part of Stephens Shire until its amalgamation with over 20 other local shires into Greater Brisbane in 1925. The shire's name can still be seen on a plaque on the bridge where Juliette Street crosses Norman Creek.
Mount Pleasant Provisional School opened on 30 July 1890 with an enrolment of 65 students. It was renamed Dunellan Provisional School. In 1892 it became Dunellan State School. In 1922 it was renamed Greenslopes State School.
In 1900, a small Baptist church was built in Cedar Street. In 1913, it was moved to the north-west corner of Dunellan Street and Henry Street (). On Saturday 14 October 1933 a new Greenslopes Baptist Church was officially opened on the north-west corner of Dunellan Street and Henry Street. The brick church has a 61 by 31 feet (18.6 by 9.4 m) main room with a seating capacity for 300 people, a 16 by 8 feet (4.9 by 2.4 m) entrance porch, together with a baptistry and vestries for both minister and choir. It is listed on the Brisbane Heritage Register.
The Brisbane City Council operated trams along Logan Road to Greenslopes from 1914 to 13 April 1969. Until 1957 a tram line also operated along Chatsworth Road, branching off the Logan Road line at Greenslopes.
