Yeronga is located approximately 7.5kms from Brisbane CBD. An interesting fact about the suburb is that a number of streets in Yeronga West begin with the letter ‘O’, for example Orvieto Road, Orsova Road and Oriana Crescent, locally known as the ‘O zone’. These streets appear to be named after ships and passenger liners owned by the Orient Line which became part of the P&O.

Yeronga, a residential suburb with a long shoreline on the Brisbane River, is five km south of central Brisbane. It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal word, ‘yerongpa’, describing a sandy place.
Farming began at Yeronga in the late 1840s, as there was a considerable stretch of undulating land adjoining the river, especially the area back from the Brisbane Corso and north-east to Fairfield. Maize, arrowroot and potatoes were important crops. Riverside estates were established after land sales in 1854. A primary school was opened in 1867, followed by an infants school (1871-1978). On Ipswich Road, Yeronga Park was proclaimed as a recreation reserve in 1882.
The journalist and parliamentarian, Charles Buzacott built his country residence, Yerong-lea, in 1883, and from that time Yeronga changed to a semi-rural/residential district. The railway line to Ipswich (1884) and a post office (1886) signified the change. In 1889 the resplendent Rhyndarra was built for William Williams, facing Long Pocket across the river from the south of Yeronga. Financial failure resulted in Williams’ property being acquired for a Salvation Army girls’ home in 1897, and later (1942) it was an Army hospital. Rhyndarra is on the Australian heritage register. Farming continued, and two vignerons, Alstenberg and Camastral, were recorded in the post office directory in 1904.
Urban development proceeded during the 1900s-10s: a tennis club was opened in Yeronga Park in 1909, and a bowling club was formed in 1912, members meeting at first in the Yeronga Hall in Fairfield Road. In 1915 the Ipswich Road tram was extended to Yeronga Park. The park became a local showpiece, with an avenue of honour (1917), war memorial gates and a mausoleum (1921). The northern part of the park was a showground, taken in 1960 as the site for the Yeronga high school. In 1942 the park was temporarily taken for a US military camp, coinciding with Rhyndarra’s conversion to a Women’s Army hospital.
A shopping centre grew in Fairfield Road in the vicinity of Devon and Cowper Streets, including the Ideal Picture Theatre.
