Carbrook, an eastern outer rural/residential suburb of Logan City, is 30 km south-east of central Brisbane.

Settled by Europeans in 1868 it was occupied mostly by German families who named the locality Gramzow. The change of name to Carbrook occurred in 1916, during World War I, but the German influence is maintained with the heritage-listed Lutheran cemetery at the corner of Mount Cotton and Wuduru Roads and by Gramzow Road north of the cemetery.
