About Boondall

Boondall is a suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2021 census, Boondall had a population of 9,603 people.

It was formerly known as Cabbage Tree Creek (after the creek that flows through the area).

Situated approximately 13.5 kilometres (8.4 mi) north of Brisbane near Moreton Bay, almost halfway between Brisbane and the coastal city of Redcliffe. Bounded on the north by Deagon, Sandgate and Shorncliffe, on the east by Nudgee and Nudgee Beach, on the south by Banyo, Geebung and Virginia and on the west by Taigum and Zillmere.

The borders of Boondall are defined by loosely following the Cabbage Tree Creek (Tighgum) to the north and then following down Muller Road in the west. When Muller Road intersects with Zillmere Road, it forms a corner near Zillmere Water Holes in the south and follow the creek to its connection with Nundah Creek and use Nundah Creek as a border back up to the Cabbage Tree Creek estuary completing the border.[citation needed]

The Boondall Wetlands are located in the east of the suburb. These internationally significant wetlands contain more than 1000 hectares of protected area that provide habitat to a wide range of animals including more than 190 species of birds.

A residential zone, Boondall is home to a mix of young and established families and retirees.[citation needed]

The name of Boondall is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning either crooked creek or cunjevoi (Alocasia macrorrhiza). The Turrbal people of north Brisbane were the original owners of the country around the Boondall Wetlands.

St Joseph's Nudgee College was established in January 1891 by the Christian Brothers, a Roman Catholic order. The site for the college was chosen by Ambrose Treacy after the Archbishop of Brisbane Robert Dunne asked that the Brothers establish a boarding school for Catholic boys from rural areas.

In January 1916, the Zillmere congregation of the Church of Christ commenced outreach in the Nudgee College area, erecting a bush shelter. On 23 December 1916, a chapel was built in a day by volunteers. In 1957, a new church building was erected and the old church building was used as a hall.

Boondall State School opened on 6 April 1925.

St Matthew's Anglican church at 178 Lyndhurst Road (27°20′52″S 153°03′42″E / 27.3478°S 153.0616°E / -27.3478; 153.0616 (St Matthew's Anglican Church (former))) was dedicated on 21 September 1974 by Archbishop Arnott. It closed circa 1988. The property was purchased by Turbert Bhagwan Ram Dutta and his mother Gayatri Dutta with a view to using it as a Hindu temple. The local Hindu community supported the plan and the Hindu Society of Queensland was incorporated on 22 January 1992 and took over the ownership of the property. The Gayatri Mandir was officially opened and blessed on Sunday 26 January 1992.

In 1975, Boondall Methodist Church was at 2218 Sandgate Road (approx 27°20′50″S 153°03′35″E / 27.3471°S 153.0597°E / -27.3471; 153.0597 (Boondall Methodist/Uniting Church (former))), becoming Boondall Uniting Church after the amalgamation of the Methodist Church into the Uniting Church in Australia in 1977. In June 1990 the Uniting Church in Australia congregations of Boondall, Brighton, Sandgate and Shorncliffe decided to amalgamate. Their new Sandgate Uniting Church in Deagon was opened in Sunday 20 November 1994.

In the 2016 census, Boondall recorded a population of 9,217 people, 49.4% female and 50.6% male. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people made up 2.5% of the population.
