Gordon Park

Gordon Park, a residential suburb is 6 km north of central Brisbane. It is U-shaped, bordered on its south and east by Kedron Brook.

In 1890 the Gordon Park housing estate was put up for sale, the name being inspired by the exploits and death of General Sir Charles Gordon (1833-85) at Khartoum, Sudan. Two of the estate's main thoroughfares were Gordon and Khartoum Streets, the latter having local shops and public facilities.
