MacGregor, one of a group of residential suburbs around Mount Gravatt named after Queensland public figures, is 13 km south-east of central Brisbane. Named in 1967, the suburb remembers Sir William MacGregor, Governor of Queensland during 1909-14. MacGregor was also Administrator of British New Guinea, 1887-98.
