Taigum, a residential suburb west of Boondall, is 11 km north-east of central Brisbane. It is bordered on its west and north sides by Cabbage Tree Creek, and its southern border is Beams Road, Zillmere. The name of the suburb, originally expressed as Tygham, was derived from an Aboriginal expression describing the Cabbage Tree Creek. The suburb was originally known as Zillmere North, and a primary school was opened in 1957. Its name was changed from Zillmere North to Taigum in 1993, 18 years after the area was formally named Taigum.
