Pullenvale, a rural/residential suburb, is 14 km south-west of central Brisbane and five km beyond Indooroopilly. Most of Pullenvale is drained by the Pullen Creek and its numerous tributaries, flowing south-east to the Brisbane River at Bellbowrie. The western part of the suburb (mostly the 490 ha Pullenvale State Forest) is drained by a separate stream system that joins the river opposite Karalee.

Pullenvale is named after the creek, but the meaning, probably Aboriginal in origin, is unknown.
