Only 15km to Brisbane’s south-west lies Inala; one of the most culturally diverse suburbs. Originally purpose-built to house returning veterans from World War II, Inala still supplies public housing to a range of residents. It is also increasingly attractive to first home buyers, investors and young families who appreciate the solid post-war architecture, quiet pace of life, multiple green spaces and larger than average blocks. Inala shares boundaries with Darra, Durack, Forest Lake and Richlands and being one of Brisbane’s final frontiers of affordable real estate, Inala’s popularity is soaring. Inala is a colourful, inclusive suburb boasting an eclectic mix of nationalities, age-groups and socio-economic profiles, only a hop, skip and a jump from Brisbane, Ipswich and Logan council areas.

Inala, a residential suburb, is 15km south-west of central Brisbane. It is a few kilometres south of the Ipswich Motorway and the railway line to Darra and Ipswich. The name is thought to be derived from an Aboriginal expression describing a restful, peaceful place, or a place of the wind.
Until the early post war years Inala was part of the Richlands district, and Richlands primary school (1934) is a few hundred metres west of Inala. The Richlands East School (1967) is in Inala adjoined by a development site (2007) on which there was Richlands High School (1970-96).
In 1946 a group of World War II ex-servicemen formed the Serviceton Co-operative Society which purchased 480 ha of land around Buddelia Street to build affordable housing. The site was subdivided into about 1000 lots for the co-op shareholders, but house construction did not proceed until the government incorporated the site into a larger project.
In 1950 the Queensland Housing Commission began construction of the Inala residential estate (named in 1952), and the census population in 1954 was over 2500. In its report for 1955-56 the Commission estimated that 7000 people lived in Inala, describing it as a satellite town of 3700 housing lots, a civic centre and eight subsidiary shopping areas. ‘Large areas’ were reserved for parklands (mainly linear parks) and provision made for schools and churches. Inala included the suburb of Durack in its east. The settlement pattern can be discerned from the building of local schools: Inala primary (1955); Serviceton primary (1959); Inala high (1960, in Durack, renamed Glenala); Inala West primary (1960); St Marks Catholic primary (1963); Serviceton South primary (1963, south Inala); Richlands East primary (1967, in Inala); Richlands high (1970-96, in Inala).
