Wooloowin is a suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.[3] In the 2016 census Wooloowin had a population of 3,938 people.[1]

Geography[edit]

Wooloowin is an inner-north suburb of Brisbane, Australia located approximately 5–6 km north of the city's central business district.

History[edit]

The origin of the suburb's name has been attributed to either the local Indigenous Australian term for a pigeon or the term for a species of fish.[3] It was the home of Brisbane's first Resident Judge, Alfred Lutwyche ,who lived in Kedron Lodge.[4]

Holy Cross Primary School opened in 1889.[5]

A stump-capping ceremony for Wooloowin Methodist Church was held on Saturday 30 November 1901. The site was on Old Sandgate Road at the junction with Bayview Terrace (now 170 Bonney Avenue).[6][7] While the church was being built, it was destroyed by a cyclone in January 1901.[8][9] The church was re-built and opened on Sunday 13 April 1902 by Reverend Robert Stewart, President of the Queensland Methodist Conference.[10] In 1975 Wooloowin Methodist Church amalgamated with Eagle Junction Congegational Church (at 211 Bonney Avenue, Clayfield) to form the Bonney Avenue Cooperative Parish. Following the amalgamation that created the Uniting Church in Australia in 1977, it was renamed Clayfield Uniting Church and decided to operate exclusively from the site of the Wooloowin Methodist Church. The Eagle Junction Congregational Church and its adjacent hall at 5 Norman Parade into private ownership;[11] both buildings still exist and are listed on the Brisbane Heritage Register.[12][13] The foundation stone of the current Clayfield Uniting Church building was laid on Sunday 2 March 1986 by Reverend Leslie Tiplin Vickery and it was opened and dedicated on 5 April 1987 by Reverend Barry Dangerfield.[11]

Wooloowin State School opened on 15 September 1914.[5]

Kedron State High School opened on 23 January 1956.[5]

At the 2011 census Wooloowin had a population of 5,942 people.[14]

Kalinga was a residential district within Wooloowin. On 16 October 2015, Kalinga was officially gazetted as a suburb, having been excised from Wooloowin.[15]

In the 2016 census Wooloowin had a population of 3,938 people.[1]
