Geography

The suburb is bounded to the west by Bulimba Creek, a tribuary of the Brisbane River. [4]

The suburb has some older style homes built in the post war period – weatherboard and chamferboard post war cottages in particular. Most of the new estates are made up of typically low set and high set brick and tile homes. Previously the land that is now being developed into residential zones was devoted to small farmlets and semi-industrial developments.[ when? ][ citation needed ]

The recent developments, which occurred in the last five years,[ when? ] are increasing the population and the median house prices of the suburb.[ citation needed ]

History

Tingalpa Creek was surveyed in 1841 and named Tingulpa. [5] The origin of Tingalpa's name is uncertain. It may be derived from an Aboriginal expression referring to a fat kangaroo, [5] or named after Tingalpa Creek, which lies 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) east, [6] or be derived from the Turrubal words tangul (meaning 'plant for stupefying fish') and pa (meaning 'place'). [7]

In 1863, a township site was surveyed on the west side of Tingalpa Creek, where Old Cleveland Road crossed the creek. It was never built on and was known as Old Tingalpa. In 1943, this location was formally abolished. In 1860s a new site was settled called New Tingalpa, away to the north-west.[ citation needed ]

In 1867, a post office was opened.[ citation needed ]

In 1867, a local architect, Richard Suter designed the Gothic Anglican Christ Church, which was built in 1868. [6] [8] The church and burial ground located on 1341 Wynnum Road, east of Bulimba Creek ( 27°28′23″S153°06′42″E / 27.473°S 153.1117°E / -27.473; 153.1117 (Christ Church Anglican) ). [9]

On 1 August 1870, the Board of Education received a letter from Mr. W. Wood, a local farmer in the Tingalpa Shire about the necessity of having a school for the district. Funds were raised by the community to buy the original 2 acres and also to build a temporary school located at 1546 Wynnum Road. [11] On 1 August 1873, the Tingalpa school was opened. Bernard McGouran was the first head teacher. The school started with 50 pupils on the roll, by June 1874 there were 99 students. The primary reason for enrolling in the early years was to learn to speak English, as the most commonly use language was the local Aboriginal dialect. In 1923, a new school was built. [11] [6] [12]

Tingalpa Cemetery had its first burial in 1875. In 1913 it was renamed Hemmant Cemetery. Lawn cemeteries were added from 1952. In 2001 a crematorium opened at the cemetery. [13] Despite the name change, as at 2020, it is within the boundaries of Tingalpa and not Hemmant ( 27°28′05″S153°08′04″E / 27.4680°S 153.1344°E / -27.4680; 153.1344 (Hemmant Cemetery) ). [4]

In 1880, a local government division was established for the Tingalpa area. The boundaries of this area were "south-east from the intersection of the Pacific Highway and the Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road, crossing the Tingalpa Creek and ending at Redland Bay." [6] The headquarters of the local government were located at Mount Cotton.

The Wynnum and Manly Road are where the above facilities are roughly located. In 1919, the diggers's war memorial was erected, making this location more prominent. In 1925, the west part of the Shire of Tingalpa become part of the Greater City of Brisbane. In 1949 the rest of the shire was joined with the Shire of Cleveland, becoming Shire of Redland (now City of Redland). In the 1949 Queensland Post Office Directory there were eight poultry farms and there are fewer dairymen. There was also two motor garages and the Pacific Cafe on Wynnum Road.

In 2011, one of the first Masters Home Improvement retail outlets in Queensland opened in Tingalpa and was located at the intersection of Wynnym Road and New Cleveland Road up until its closure in December 2016. [14]
