Nundah is an inner suburb of Brisbane, Australia, located approximately 8km north-east of the Brisbane CBD.
Like most of Northern Brisbane, the area around Nundah was dominated by the Turrbul tribe. Their traditional coastal trade route passed through Nundah, near the modern-day Hedley Avenue. There are also many significant Aboriginal sites near Nundah, such as Dinah Island, which was reportedly the site of the last traditional Aboriginal burial in the Brisbane area.
Due to its inner-northern location, there are a variety of options for transport within the suburb. Both the Nundah Citytrain station and the Toombul Citytrain station are located within the suburb. There are many council bus services that run through the area, including the 598/599 Great Circle Line.
Nundah is in the Federal Electorate of Lilley. In 2005, Wayne Swan was elected as Lilley’s Federal Member. Swan’s electoral office is in the suburb, in the commercial district on the corner of Sandgate and Buckland roads. A small shopping centre anchored by a Woolworths supermarket has been completed in this district, containing over 200 parking spots, a Subway store, a Coffee Club, and numerous other small shops.
Nundah’s postcode is 4012. The suburb is well serviced by public transport, with the railway station being serviced by both Caboolture Line and Shorncliffe Line services combining to provide 15-minute frequencies throughout the day seven days a week. Nundah is also located on Brisbane Transport’s Great Circle Line bus route.
Schulz Canal runs through Nundah, bisecting the Toombul Shopping Centre Carpark. The low elevation of the carpark makes it particularly susceptible to flash flooding during peak storm seasons – often claiming the cars of unwary shoppers inside the centre and those attempting to cross the Melton Road bridge. The estuary of the canal is a moderately popular recreational fishing spot.
