History[edit]

Fishing and boating parties at Enoggera Creek, circa 1900

The Enoggera Reservoir suburb is named after the Enoggera Dam. The name Enoggera is a corruption of the Yuggera word yauar-ngari meaning corroboree ground. The suburb was officially named and bounded on 15 December 1990.[2]

As of 12 February 2011, sufficient water inflows returned the reservoir to usable levels, and water is now used to supply neighbouring suburbs. Prior to this the reservoir levels were insufficient for water supply, primarily due to the drought which was experienced by South-East Queensland prior to the January 2011 floods.

In the 2011 census, Enoggera Reservoir had a population of 24 people.[4]

In the 2016 census, Enoggera Reservoir had a population of 25 people.[1]
