Thagoona is a residential district with outlying rural areas on the Brisbane to Toowoomba railway. Situated 13 km west of Ipswich, its immediate neighbours are Rosewood and Amberley. The name of the district seems to have originated with the opening of the railway station (1888) which was named Raeside. A change of name to Thagoona occurred soon afterwards, and the meaning or origin of the name is apparently unrecorded.
