History of Morayfield

The suburb name Morayfield originates from George Raff, a Brisbane man who in 1868 bought land held by the failed Caboolture Cotton Company and called it “Moray Field” derived from Raff's native Morayshire in Scotland. It was often written as "Morayfields" and, from 1881, became "Morayfield".

Until the mid-1980s, Morayfield remained a rural area consisting of a small dairy holding and small crop farming enterprises. However, population growth in Brisbane led to further development in northern suburbs.
