The One Stop Shop
The suburb of Carindale is located approximately ten kilometres south east of the Brisbane CBD. It is surrounded by the neighbouring suburbs of Carina, Tingalpa, Belmont, Carina Heights, Chandler, Mount Gravatt East, Mansfield and Mackenzie. Carindale is bordered on the east by the Gateway Motorway and Creek Road on the west.
Meadowlands Road runs along the northern boundary. Other main roads that travel through the suburb include Old Cleveland Road, Scrub Road, Myall Road, Wecker Road, Pine Mountain Road, Greendale Way, Winstanley Street, and more. Due to its location and proximity to other popular suburbs, Carindale is often referred to as Brisbane’s mini CBD.
The area that is now known as Carindale was first settled in the 1850s by Europeans. At this point, the land was mainly used for timber and agricultural activities. In 1958, the St Gabriel The Archangel’s Anglican Church was established, with a new church later being established in 1991. The church was then eventually consecrated in 2010. Originally, the suburb of Carindale was a part of the Belmont Shire and the suburb of Belmont.
In 1976, the Carindale housing estate was placed on the market and four years later, the suburb was officially named after this specific estate. The actual name ‘Carindale’ is derived from the neighbouring suburb Carina and ‘dale’ which means valley. Both schools in the area, Belmont State Primary School and Carina State Primary School, were established early on in 1876 and 1917 respectively. Of course, the most notable feature in Carindale is the Westfield Carindale Shopping Centre. It originally opened in 1979 and has grown tremendously to now contain over 270 shops. Carindale’s first developmental phase during the 1970s and 1980s happened around the shopping centre which saw the suburb grow rapidly into what it is known as today.
