Nundah, a suburb of mainly interwar housing stock, is 10 km north-east of central Brisbane.

In 1838, at the prompting of the Presbyterian minister, John Dunmore Lang, a Moravian mission was established in the vicinity of Kedron Brook and the Toombul Shoppingtown in the southern part of Nundah. The nearby heritage-listed Nundah cemetery in Hedly Avenue contains the remains of several of the missionaries and their families. The mission, on a land grant of 2.6 sq km (1 sq mile) was named Zion Hill, and the area became known as German Station.
