Coorparoo is a suburb within Brisbane, located 4 km from the CBD.
It was called Four Mile Camp before it was given its current name during a public meeting on 22 March 1875. The name Coorparoo probably stemmed from an Aboriginal name for Norman Creek, likely recorded as Koolpuroom by early surveyors.
The homes in this area are a mix of old Queenslander, art deco and contemporary styles. Coorparoo is considered one of the best suburbs in Brisbane with its close proximity to the city and easy access to train and express buses, cafes, parks and a new retail/residential project at the old Myers Building on Old Cleveland Road.
This quiet, green suburb is bordered by Camp Hill, Holland Park, Greenslopes, East Brisbane, Norman Park and Seven Hills.
