Geography

Rochedale South is 19 km from Brisbane City, or 15 minutes drive, 56 km or 35 minutes drive from Surfers Paradise in the Gold Coast and 28 km or 21 minutes drive from Brisbane Airport. Its Northern boundaries of Priestdale and Underwood Road form the Logan/Brisbane local council boundary. Part of the suburb's western boundary follows the Pacific Motorway. In the past Rochedale was known for its rich, red soil that is good for crops. Yet due to recent years of drought in the area, much of the farming has been abandoned and are now commercialised.

 

History

In 1952, the Gill family ran a poultry farm and piggery and in 1967 developed the land into the first sewered estate in the region. They named some of the streets after the towns and streets in England from where they originated in 1951. Some of the streets were Ridgeway Street, Green Way, Edgeware Drive and Gills Close. In 1979, the suburb was split off from the larger Rochedale. The Strathlands shopping centre opened in 1970 but was later renamed Rochedale Shopping Village. A number of churches and school were established in the following decades as the population of the suburb expanded with estate developments.

 

Schools

Nearby high schools include Springwood State High School, Rochedale State High School and Redeemer Lutheran College. Rochedale South State School, Springwood Road State School are within the suburb whereas Eight Mile Plains State School, St Peters Catholic Primary School and Rochedale State School are all marginally outside the suburb's boundary.

 

Sports

Rochedale is home to the 2010 Brisbane Premier League champions, Rochedale Rovers Football Club. They play out of Underwood Park, Priestdale.

 

Profile

Rochedale South sits between Rochedale and Springwood on the eastern side of the Pacific Motorway. Families will find many of the services and facilities they require in neighbouring suburbs. The closest shopping centre is located at Springwood; however Garden City Shopping Centre is easily accessed via the Pacific Motorway. Both retail precincts also offer access to bus interchanges for those seeking public transport to local centres or Brisbane City. Families are serviced by the Rochedale South and Springwood Road Primary Schools; while surrounding suburbs offer a variety of schooling, including public and private secondary schools. The Pacific and Gateway Motorways are conveniently located nearby and offer residents good access to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, as well as the Brisbane domestic and international airports. Housing stock consists primarily of older style brick and tile houses, with some timber and brick homes also.
