Mango Hill is a suburb in the Moreton Bay Region, Queensland, Australia.[2] In the 2016 census, Mango Hill had a population of 8,434 people.[1]

History[edit]

Although locally known by this name since the 1950s, it wasn't until 1 September 1980 that it was formally decreed. The name Mango Hill was chosen to commemorate the section of Mango trees (Magnifera indica) that were planted along the 700 metre (2,300 ft) section of Anzac Avenue that passes through the area.

In March 2006, the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Water subdivided the northern section of Mango Hill to form the suburb of North Lakes.

Although now separated, the area still reaps the benefits of the major infrastructure and retail upgrades that have taken place in North Lakes in recent years, including the Moreton Bay Rail Link and shopping outlets such as Costco and IKEA. This has resulted in a significant boost to economic growth in the Moreton Bay Region.

North Lakes State College opened on 1 January 2002.[3]

The Lakes College opened on 24 January 2005.[3]

Mango Hill State School opened on 1 January 2012.[4]

In the 2016 census, Mango Hill had a population of 8,434 people.[1]

Heritage listing[edit]

On 5 February 2009, Anzac Avenue (the road itself)[6] was awarded heritage listed status. The memorial site is a tribute to soldiers[7] lost in World War I and has been in various stages of development since 1925. The section of Anzac Avenue (between the Bruce Highway and Kinsellas Road) that passes through Mango Hill, also shares this prestigious status and is synonymous with the suburb.
