Kedron, a residential suburb on Gympie Road and immediately north of Lutwyche and Gordon Park, is eight km north of central Brisbane. It is separated from Kedron Brook by Gordon Park.
Kedron Brook, with headwaters in Ferny Grove, is a significant watercourse that enters a wetland at Toombul near the airport. It was there in 1838 that German Moravian missionaries formed a settlement for the protection of Aborigines, and named the watercourse after the Biblical Kedron River.
In 1856 farm lots along Kedron Book were surveyed, and two of them near Gympie Road were purchased by Judge Alfred Lutwyche in 1859. Now the site of Kedron High School and an emergency services complex, Lutwyche named his estate Kedron Lodge. Lutwyche donated land to the south (now in Wooloowin) for St Andrew’s Anglican church (1866). Population was scattered, but Gympie Road was a main access route. The Edinburgh Castle Hotel (c1868) was opened on Gympie Road, and Kedron Brook was bridged in the 1870s (previously crossings relied on a ford).
It was the Kedron Park Hotel (1880), however, which brought life to the district. The proprietor started horse races, polo matches and sports days on Kedron Park, apparently with the co-operation of the beneficiaries of Lutwyche’s estate. The Kedron district was otherwise farms and tanneries all the way along Kedron Brook, and so intense was their activity that complaints were made about pollution of the Brook. Local government did not do much about the problem. Nundah division (1879) lost its population centre when Toombul was severed in 1883, leaving it with the rural backblocks running out to Bald Hills and Bunya.
