History Of Kedron, Brisbane, Australia

The Turrbal First Nations people are the traditional owners of the land upon which Kedron sits.

European settlement in the area started in 1838 when a group of German missionaries were given 500 acres (later called German Station and then Nundah) along the local creek. They named the creek Kedron Brook after discovering the name had biblical significance.

The area that subsequently became Kedron (after the brook) was located several kilometres upstream from German Station. It was predominantly a rural area until the Gympie gold rush in 1868.

To service the gold rush, construction on a bridge over the Brook and Gympie Road commenced. This opened up property north of the Brook along the new road and attracted a growing number of businesses.

A local Post Office opened in the early 1890’s and inaugural postmaster John King called it ‘Kedron’. The name became official in 1901.
