History
In 1885, a number of Swedish immigrants from the Cheybassa established farms in the area. Early crops included oats, maize, potatoes and turnips. Horses and cattle were grazed and timber was cut. Other early settlers were John and George Hubner who took up farms in 1893. Although the district acquired the unofficial name of Hubner from the Hubner family, when the (then) local government Shire of Beaudesert tried to formalise it in 1987, it was instead decided to name the area Crestmead after a local housing estate. On 24 December 2012, 80 workers at the Dairy Farmers factory in the Crestmead Industrial Estate staged a protest at the factory to protest pay rates; the protest included blocking access to milk tankers. A very large number of police attended and protestors clashed with police.

Education
There are two schools in Crestmead.

 

Crestmead State School, a government primary (P-6) school, is located at 27-61 Augusta Street. Crestmead State School is a very popular primary school and has become one of the largest public primary schools in the state with enrolments now exceeding 1200. It opened on 23 January 1984 and was recognized in 2017 with new status as an Independent Public School (IPS), and is using this to forge a closer partnership with nearby Kingston State College which is an IPS state high school.

St Francis College, a Roman Catholic primary and secondary (P-12) school, is located at 64 Julie Street

 

Economy
The Crestmead Industrial Estate is located on the western side of the suburb. It has lot sizes ranging from 1,800 square metres to 2.6 hectares. It is suitable for light to medium industry and businesses can operate 24 hours a day.

Amenities
Crestmead Community Centre is in Crestmead Community Park and can be accessed from Gimlet Street. It comprises a hall, small meeting rooms and kitchen facilities. A range of activities including dancing and health clinics operate from the centre. Numbellie Karulboo Community Centre is provided on the grounds of St Francis College by the college for use by the community. 'Numbellie Karulboo' means 'everybody together' in the Yuggera and Yugambeh languages. It hosts an indigenous dance group, children's playgroups and cross-cultural programs.
 

Profile

Located in Logan Shire, Crestmead is proving increasingly popular with young families and with its pretty parklands and multiple primary schools it's not hard to see why. Still an affordable suburb to buy in, Crestmead offers a mix of newer and older style, mostly low-set homes in a well-established environment complete with a good selection of shops, a community centre and a pony club. At Crestmead Park you'll find bike and walking trails as well as a playground and picnic facilities. Crestmead's popularity was further cemented in September 2006 with a new 57-lot estate selling in one month. Another new subdivision, Kensington Estate, is already established and is accessed off Wisdom Way. Crestmead is bordered by major roads and is within easy commuting distance of the Brisbane CBD and the Gold Coast by road, rail and bus. Nearby Logan City, however, offers significant employment opportunities with more than 7000 businesses. Crestmead was the name of an original housing estate in nearby Marsden but became a gazetted suburb in 1987.
