History of Strathpine

Strathpine is a Scottish place name, where strath means valley and pine refers to the Pine River.

Strathpine was originally developed in the 1860s as an addition to the North Pine settlement during the Gympie gold rush. In the late 19th century, the area was known for sugar and rum production, with several sugar mills and distilleries in the area.

The area was first named Strathpine by the Queensland Government Railways in the 1880s.

The population of Strathpine boomed in the 1940s after the opening of 'Camp Strathpine' a large army camp and airfield which helped both Australian and American forces during World War II.

Urbanisation was evident in the 1960s, as development slowly increased as Brisbane’s rapidly growing population expanded into Strathpine. Most of the farms were sold off and the area quickly grew into a residential and commercial hub. Within 20 years Strathpine's population went from under 2000 to over 10,000 people.

The Strathpine administrative centre built in 1888 has been preserved for theatre performances and public gatherings and is listed on the Queensland heritage register.
