Mackenzie, a residential and rural/residential suburb, is 13 km south-east of central Brisbane. It was named after Colonel W. Mackenzie, a sugar planter on the Bulimba Creek, about two km north-west in present day Carindale.

Before being named in 1975, Mackenzie was a rural area divided between Rochedale and Belmont. The most prominent local landmark was Mount Petrie (170 m), named after Tom Petrie. The rural Mount Petrie School on Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road was opened in 1955.
