Originally known as West Nundah, Wavell Heights is west of Sandgate Road and extends southwards from Downfall Creek to Kedron Brook.
Part of Wavell Heights adjoining Sandgate Road is less than one kilometre from the Nundah railway station. It was subdivided for housing in the mid-1920s and by the outbreak of the World War II was nearly completely built up. In 1992 a housing character study showed that less than 10% of the residences had fallen to multiple dwelling development. Known as West Nundah, letter deliveries apparently became confused, and in 1941 the local progress association agitated for a new name. The choices offered were Inala and Wavell Heights, the latter succeeding in the wartime environment, honouring Field Marshall Lord Wavell, leader of the Allied Forces.
The rest of West Nundah was farming, mostly pineapple growing and dairying. Shops were opened along Rode Road and a Neighbourhood Society was formed in 1948. It concentrated on a site donated by the Council at the corner of Edinburgh Castle Road and Fourteenth Avenue, installing an ex-army hut for a local hall. Ultimately a memorial hall, kindergarten, bowling greens and Scout and Guide facilities were built there.
