Greenslopes, a residential suburb, is five km south-east of central Brisbane. It includes the locality of Stones Corner and the part of Thompson Estate east of the South East Freeway. The suburb was named after a 19 hectare estate acquired by Frederick Wecker in 1857 in Old Cleveland Road, east of Stones Corner, between Pembroke Road and Kirkland Avenue (formerly Wecker Street).
