Auchenflower is an inner riverside suburb of Brisbane, approximately 3.5km west of the Brisbane CBD and located primarily between Milton Road and Coronation Drive. The name Auchenflower is believed to have emerged in the 1880s and is contributed to former Queensland Premier, Thomas McIlwraith who acquired, and renamed, a substantial home originally built in the area in 1850 by John Ward. McIlwraith is believed to have named the home ‘Auchenflower’ after his family estate in Ayrshire, Scotland, with the name bearing Gaelic roots thought to describe a field of flowers.
Substantial European settlement already existed in the area by the time of McIlwraiths arrival including Ambrose Eldridge and Robert Cribb, two earlier settlers responsible for the construction of Milton House (1854) and Dunmore (1854), both of which proved to be located too close to the river following the infamous 1893 flood. The men spearheaded development and progression in the area through the subsequent subdivision of their estates for smaller housing allotments.
Auchenflower’s close proximity to Brisbane’s CBD and frontage along Coronation Drive have been key drivers for significant development and a demographic shift since colonial and prewar time including the construction of The Wesley Hospital in 1977 and numerous areas adjacent to Coronation Drive seeing significant redevelopment from detached housing to low and medium density commercial and residential development.
