Coorparoo is an inner suburb of Brisbane, 4 km south-east of central Brisbane. The name probably derived from an Aboriginal word describing Norman Creek and its tributaries, as it refers to mosquitoes, or possibly the sound made by a dove. Coorparoo is on the eastern side of Norman Creek, a southern tributary of the Brisbane River.
Access to the Coorparoo area in the post-European era was initially by crossing over Norman Creek, at Old Cleveland Road, Stones Corner. A bridge was constructed around 1856, which coincided with the sale of land subdivisions averaging 50 acres, most of which became semi-rural estates.
In 1875 the name ‘Coorparoo’ was adopted by popular assent, and a state primary school opened in Old Cleveland Road in 1876. Three years later, with suburban Brisbane pressing against Norman Creek, the whole of the area to the east of the creek was incorporated as the Bulimba Divisional Board. Coorparoo was administered as Subdivision 3.
A second bridge across Norman Creek was opened at Stanley Street in 1886, in response to Coorparoo’s increasing urbanisation, and in 1888 the Coorparoo Shire was formed by severance from Bulimba following local agitation. The new shire included Stones Corner and parts of Holland Park and Camp Hill. The following year the Cleveland railway line opened through the northern part of the shire.
In 1886 a Wesleyan church was opened. Athletic endeavour followed the spiritual several years later, with the formation of various local sporting bodies: Coorparoo Cricket Club (1888), Coorparoo Racecourse (1891), and a tennis club (1893). The timber Wesleyan church remained on Cavendish Road, its shingle roof and bell tower an area landmark. It was replaced in 1959 by the present brick building, now a Uniting Church.
