Murrumba Downs

Murrumba Downs, a residential suburb in the Pine Rivers district, is 26 km north of central Brisbane. Its eastern and southern boundaries are the Bruce Highway and the North Pine River. Originally part of Kallangur, Murrumba Downs was gazetted as a new suburb in 1979.

Murrumba was the name of Tom Petrie's farm holding (1859), and his Murrumba homestead was on the site now occupied by Our Lady of the Way Catholic school near the Petrie railway station.
