History[edit]

The origin of the name Bundamba is from the Ugarapul language meaning place of the stone axe. It was initially written as Bundumba, then Bundanba, and then on 30 January 1932, the name was officially standardised as Bundamba.[2]

The name Bergins may refer to either Denis Bergin or Thomas Bergin. Denis Bergin was the publican of the Prince Alfred Hotel at Bundamba; he was also a prospector and the Bergin coal seam is named after him. Thomas Bergin was a bailiff who lived in the area.[9]

A Primitive Methodist Church opened on Monday 31 July 1865 in Mr Seymour's paddock.[13]

Bundamba Lower State School opened on 7 February 1873. In 1913 it was renamed Bundamba State School.[14][15]

Bundamba Upper State School opened on 2 February 1874. In 1909. it was renamed Ripley State School. It closed in 1930 due to low student numbers.[14] It was at 1166-1176 Ripley Road in present-day South Ripley.[16]

From the 1880s, the Redbank - Bundamba Loop Line was progressively developed to provide a series of railway sidings serving the coal mines in the area.[17][18]

In December 1895 the Anglican Diocese's architect John Buckeridge called for tenders to erect the Church of All Saints in Bundanba.[19] The land was donated by Miss Ferrett and Mr Harry Ferrett. Bishop William Webber laid the foundation stone on Friday 24 January 1896.[20] Bishop Webber opened and dedicated the new church on Saturday 16 May 1896.[21][22] In April 1897 Harry Ferrett was married in the church.[23] In 1913 the church building was moved by rolling it on beer barrels to Silkstone. In 1930 it was moved again on a flat-top lorry to its current location in Booval.[24] A new church hall for All Saints' Anglican Church was opened in Booval on Sunday 10 May 1930.[25] The second All Saints' Anglican Church was dedicated in Booval in 1983.[26]

Bundamba State High School opened on 27 January 1970 and was renamed Bundamba State Secondary College on 1 January 2003.[27][28]

At some time after 1980, Bundamba Uniting Church and Blackstone Uniting Church joined Trinity Uniting Church in North Booval which was then renamed Trinity Ipswich Uniting Church.[29]

Motivated by the Millennium drought, the Bundamba Advanced Water Treatment Plant commenced construction in September 2006 and was completed in June 2008. It was built as part of the Western Corridor Recycled Water Project. Its purpose was to supply purified recycled water for use in the Swanbank Power Station which had previously drawn its water from the Wivenhoe Dam, competing with the supply of drinking water.[30]
