Coalfalls is a suburb in the City of Ipswich, Queensland, Australia.[2] At the 2016 Australian Census, the suburb recorded a population of 943.[1]

History[edit]

The origin of the suburb name comes from James Blair's house, Coalfalls, which in turn probably takes its name from the sighting of coal seams in this area, most notably along the banks of the Bremer River.[2]
