Ilkley is a locality in the Sunshine Coast Region, Queensland, Australia.[1]


Following the establishment of a settlement there about 1890, the locality was named Ilkley after Ilkey in Yorkshire, England, the home town of the local preacher Joseph Kitson.[1]

Ilkley Provisional School opened on 25 November 1901, becoming Ilkley State School on 1 January 1909. In 1924, it briefly became a part-time school sharing a teacher with Chevallum State School. Ilkley continued a full-time school until its final closure in 1964.[2]
