Queensburgh is a town in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa that is situated inland (southwest) from Durban and now forms part of eThekwini, the Greater Durban metropolitan area. The hilly area was settled by people working in Durban who wanted to escape the humidity of the coastal city. In 1924, four residential townships in the area, Malvern, Escombe, Northdene and Moseley combined to form the town of Malvern. In 1952, to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne, Malvern received municipality status and changed its name to Queensburgh.
The area is served by an arterial road called Sarnia Road that begins at Solomon Mahlangu drive (formerly Edwin Swales Drive) in the southernmost part and traverses the localities of Sea View, Bellair, Malvern, Escombe, Northdene and Moseley.
