Geography[edit]

The surburb is bounded to the west and south-west by the Bremer River.[3]

The Main Line railway enters the suburb from the south-east (Ipswich CBD) and exits to the west (Wulkuraka) with Thomas Street railway station serving the suburb (27°36′53″S 152°44′44″E / 27.6148°S 152.7455°E / -27.6148; 152.7455 (Thomas Street railway station)).[3][4]

History[edit]

The origin of the suburb name is from an early property owner Thomas Sadlier.[2]

In 1901, Blair Methodist Church opened at 29 Burnett Street (27°36′40″S 152°44′56″E / 27.6111°S 152.7488°E / -27.6111; 152.7488 (Blair Methodist/Uniting Church (former))). Circa 1977 it became Blair Uniting Church. It closed circa 1980.[5] As at February 2022, the church building is still extant but in private ownership.[6]

Blair State School opened on 26 March 1917.[7] Unlike most Queensland state schools which are named for the suburb/locality that they serve, Blair State School was named honour of Sir James Blair who was instrumental in the establishment of the school.[8]

Mater Dei Catholic Church opened in a converted house in 1964.[9]

In the 2016 census, Sadliers Crossing had a population of 1,366 people.[1]
