Karalee and Barellan Point

Karalee, a residential and rural/residential suburb, is 10 km north-east of central Ipswich and 20 km from central Brisbane.

It is bordered on the north and east by the Brisbane River, the boundary extending from near Colleges Crossing to a few kilometres short of Barellan Point. Its southern boundary is partly formed by the Bremer River. A large suburb, Karalee measures six km from north to south.

It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal expression describing grass near a waterhole.
