Collingwood Park

Collingwood Park, a residential suburb, is 11 km east of central Ipswich and immediately south of Redbank. Its eastern and western boundaries are the Goodna and Six Mile Creeks respectively. It was named in 1982 by a land developer, possibly after the inner suburb of Collingwood in Melbourne.

The expression 'park' differentiated the suburb from Redbank, the site of several collieries and industries: a map, c1940, showed the area as devoid of any development apart from a perimeter road. An early temporary settlement was the 13th Australian Scout Jamboree, 1982-83.
