Mount Ommaney

Mount Ommaney, a residential suburb immediately west of the Centenary Highway, is 13 km south-west of central Brisbane. It was named after J.M. Ommaney, the nephew of Dr Stephen Simpson, an early landowner. Simpson's Wolston homestead (1853) is in Wacol, and his nephew was killed in a horse-riding accident in 1856.
