Chuwar, a partly developed residential suburb, is 8 km north-east of central Ipswich. It lies between the Brisbane River (Colleges Crossing) and the former colliery district of Tivoli.

The name originated in 1848 as a parish name given by the colonial surveyor, James Warner. In 1886, when the area had been occupied by farmers, the name 'Chuwar' was given to a settlement around the intersection of Mt Crosby and Junction Roads.
