Kurwongbah is a rural/residential suburb in the former Pine Rivers Shire, 29 km north of central Brisbane. It was named after Lake Kurwongbah, the lesser of two water storages constructed for Pine Rivers during the 1960s and 1970s. Lake Kurwongbah supplied the Amcor paper mill in Petrie, as well as supplementing residential consumption. 'Kurwongbah' is thought to be an Aboriginal word for Sideling Creek, the lake's main water source.
