Thornlands is located approximately 32 kilometres (20 mi) by road south-east Brisbane, the capital of the Queensland. [4]

Major access to Thornlands is provided by Boundary Road, Cleveland-Redland Bay Road, or Wellington Street. [5]

It is predominantly used for residential purposes, but some parts in the south of the locality are still used for farming. [6]

The area is now primarily suburban residences, with the southern parts rural residences, comprising larger land blocks. The population is growing rapidly due to new housing developments.[ citation needed ]

History

Thornlands began as part of the area then encompassed by Cleveland, and was leased (along with most of the land between Ormiston and the Logan River), to Joseph Clarke. He relinquished his lease in 1858, allowing small farmers to settle in the area. [7]

The area took the name Thornlands after George Thorn, a major landholder in the area, whose lands were subdivided around 1900. The area was settled, like the surrounding suburbs, primarily by farmers, mostly growing fruit such as citrus, bananas and mangoes.

Thornlands State School opened on 1 November 1910 with 14 students under teacher Miss M. Fielding. [7] [8] [9]

Redland District Special School opened on 15 November 1975. [8]

The Nazarene Bible College was established on an 18-acre (7.3 ha) site by the Church of the Nazarene. It opened on 8 March 1976 with eight students with a focus on training for the ministry of the church. The college had originally commenced operation in 1953 in Thornleigh, Sydney, but was unable to afford the cost of necessary renovations to that site, so the college decided to relocate to Thornlands. In 1992 the college decided to seek accreditation as a tertiary education provider and in 1993 renamed the college Nazarene Theological College as more appropriate to its wider mission. [10]

Redlands Luthern Primary School (also known as Faith Primary School) opened on 24 January 1982 [8] on land in Link Road, Victoria Point, donated by Wally Hauser. It was established by three Lutheran congregations from Cleveland, Redland Bay and Mount Cotton. There were 63 students in Years 1 to 4 with three teachers in the school's first year, expanding to offering Years 1 to 7 by the school's third year of operation. The primary school had expected to become a feeder school to the Redeemer Lutheran College, but when that was not possible, it was decided to expand the school to also offer secondary education. Land on Beveridge Road in Thornlands was purchased and the secondary campus of the renamed Faith Lutheran College, Redlands opened on 28 January 2003. [8] [11] The first group of Year 12s graduated in November 2007. [12]

Carmel College was established on 23 January 1993 by Brisbane Catholic Education, part of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane. [8] [13] It replaced Mount Carmel Catholic Secondary School College which opened in Wynnum in 1957 and closed on 31 December 1992. [14] [15]

Bay View State School opened in 2010. It was known as Thornlands South State School during the planning phase. [16]
