Larapinta is an outer southern industrial suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.[3] In the 2016 census, Larapinta had a population of 0 people.[1]

Larapinta is on the boundary with Logan City. The industrial area has become a new addition to the expansion of Brisbane's industry, including the purpose-built South Brisbane Industrial Park in nearby Heathwood.


The Sydney–Brisbane rail corridor passes along the eastern border of the suburb.[4] The Logan Motorway bisects the suburb in an east/west direction.

The north and west of the suburb is bounded by Oxley Creek.

In the south the Glider Forest Conservation Area has been created to protect a large tract of bushland.


Larapinta means "flowing water" and was named due to the presence of Oxley Creek .[4] Sand mining has occurred in the area, resulting in a change of course for the main stream of the creek.

At the 2011 census Larapinta had a population of 0 people.[5]

In the 2016 census, Larapinta had a population of 0 people.[1]
