Aspley, a residential suburb which grew during the 1970s, lies 12 km north of central Brisbane along Gympie Road. It is crossed by the Cabbage Tree Creek and the Little Cabbage Tree Creek and was originally known by the latter name.

Land sales for small farms in the area began in 1857, and ended in 1866. The suburb takes its name from the property of John Morris, whose allotment was purchased in 1865 and located in Maundrell Terrace near the State school.
