Stones Corner sign, corner Logan Road and Montague Road, 2015
|LGA(s)||City of Brisbane|
The area was originally known as Burnett's Swamp, being low-lying land around the flood-prone Norman Creek. The triangle of land (the "corner") at the south-east of the junction of Logan Road and Old Cleveland Road was purchased by James Stone in 1875. He tried to get a licence to operate a hotel at the location but was unsuccessful so he brewed and sold ginger beer instead. The area took the name Stone's Corner as a result and later became a suburb with that name.
The Australian Institute of Applied Sciences has its Brisbane campus at 28 Old Cleveland Road.
