Yeronga is a Brisbane residential suburb located along the shoreline of the Brisbane River. It is 7km south of the Brisbane CBD. It is believed that the suburb’s name was coined from an Aboriginal word “yarung” which means sandy and “ba”, meaning place or from the name of Charles Hardie Buzacott’s residence, “Yerong-lea”.
Agriculture was originally the leading industry in the suburb. Cotton, maize, potatoes, arrowroot and sugar were grown in the area and dairy farms were established. The first settlements were in Fairfield Road, around Kadumba Street (formerly Station Avenue).
