Virginia, a residential suburb, is 11 km north-east of central Brisbane. It is thought that it was named after the American state of Virginia. Originally an area consisting of farm lands and swamp, Virginia is situated on the Downfall Creek which is joined by the Zillman Waterholes stream at Virginia's eastern boundary. The Downfall Creek swampland is now enclosed by the Virginia Golf Course (1930).
