Durack is an outer residential suburb of Brisbane, 15 km south-west of the CBD.

Before its urbanisation, Durack was known as Oxley South, Serviceton (1946) and Inala (1953) (Durack State primary school (1959) was named Serviceton when opened). In 1976, when housing in Inala extended eastward across Serviceton Avenue, local residents voted for the new area to be named Durack, in memory of the Durack family's Archerfield pastoral station (1882) which included the Blunder Creek plain and Inala districts.
