Karawatha is an outer southern suburb of the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. At the 2016 census the suburb recorded a population of only 19.[1]

It was formerly known as Berrinba, but now Berrinba is the name of the suburb to the south within Logan City.[2][3] Karawatha is 22 kilometres (14 mi) south-east of the Brisbane CBD.


The naming of the suburb Karawatha originates from an Aboriginal word meaning a place with pine trees.[2]


Karawatha is a sparsely populated suburb with few structures and the majority of the land used as undeveloped park land, known as Karawatha Forest.


The Islamic College of Brisbane, which offers education P-12, is located in Karawatha, at the Logan Border, next to the Karawatha Forest.
