Seven Hills

Seven Hills, a residential suburb designed as a 'garden estate', is five km east of central Brisbane. Its development occurred mainly in the early post World War II years, as it lay undeveloped between public transport routes along Old Cleveland Road (tram) and the eastern suburbs railway line through Norman Park and Morningside. Seven Hills, a well identified suburb in the 1960s, was gradually submerged in Norman Park and Morningside, but in 2001 was gazetted as a suburb after considerable local agitation.
