About Holland Park West
Holland Park West is a suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Holland Park West had a population of 6,376 people.
Holland Park West is located to the south-east of the Brisbane central business district between the Pacific Motorway and Logan Road.
The South East Busway passes through the suburb which is served by the Holland Park West busway station ().
The suburb takes its name from the adjacent suburb of Holland Park, which in turn takes its name from the subdivision of land owned by Julius Holland.
In May 1914, on what is now known as Holland Park West, 62 subdivided allotments of 'Hill Farm Estate' were auctioned by G.T. Bell and Chandler and Russell. A map advertising the auction states the Estate was 12 minutes' walk from the Logan Road tram.
In 1926 the Logan Road tramway was extended to a new terminus at Holland Park. Trams commenced operation on the route on Sunday 1 August 1926.
Holland Park Baptist Church opened on Saturday 15 December 1928 by the President of the Baptist Union, Reverend Alfred George Weller. The new church was 30 by 18 feet (9.1 by 5.5 m) and was an old building that they had acquired and removed from another site and reconstructed at 10 Yuletide Street off Logan Road (). In 1970 a new church building was constructed on the site, with the former church relocated to the rear of the site. The Grace Bible Church which now occupies the site is not affiliated with the Baptist Union.
Marshall Road State School opened on 25 January 1960.
Holland Park State High School opened on 25 January 1971.
Mount Gravatt West Special School was opened on 28 July 1986. On 1 January 2010, it was renamed Nursery Road State Special School. In 2010, the Xavier Special Education Unit of Whites Hill State College in Camp Hill was transferred to Nursery Road Special School. Originally established in 1970 as the Xavier Special School in Coorparoo, the unit was officially merged into Whites Hill State College in 2002, but was never relocated to the college's site in Camp Hill but remained in Coorparoo until its lease expired in 2009, triggering the move to Mount Gravatt West Special School as being better equipped to accommodate Xavier's conductive education methods for children with multiple impairments. As at 2022, Xavier's conductive education methods continue to be an important program at Nursery Road Special School.
