History[edit]

On 14 June 2019 parts of the localities of Bells Creek and Meridan Plains were excised to create the localities of Banya, Corbould Park, Gagalba and Nirimba to accommodate future suburban growth in the Caloundra South Priority Development Area.[2][3][4][5][6][7]

The name Gagalba means shining place in the Gubbi Gubbi and Butchulla languages.[1]
