Blackstone and Bundamba

Bundamba is a former coal mining area, 5 km east of Ipswich. The Bundamba coal field included the Welsh settler village of Blackstone immediately south of present day Bundamba. Each is now a recognisable suburb within the Ipswich City local government area, and each had its own primary school.
