Stones Corner

Stones Corner, an inner suburban locality at the junction of Logan and Old Cleveland Roads, is three km south-east of central Brisbane. Formerly a discrete suburb, it is now part of Greenslopes.

The locality was originally known as Burnett Swamp, a name vindicated when flood waters backed up Norman Creek and inundated most of Stones Corner in 1893.
