Belmont and Belmont Shire

Belmont, a former shire, and now a residential and rural/residential suburb, is 12 km south-east of central Brisbane, although travel by Old Cleveland Road or the Gateway Motorway is considerably further. It was named after an estate (1870s) owned by August Bernecker, set in a fertile landscape along the Bulimba Creek. Bernecker Street, Carina, was once part of Belmont.
