North Booval

North Booval is a residential suburb four km north-east of central Ipswich. It is immediately north of the Ipswich railway line and the Booval station, and is bounded on its east by Bundamba Creek and on its north and most of its west by the Bremer River.

North Booval was named after Booval House, the residence of an Ipswich bank manager, George Faircloth. The name may have derived from an Aboriginal expression referring to a frilled lizard.
