Lying close to the geographical centre of Greater Brisbane, Enoggera is another of those place names over which historians argue about the Aboriginal derivation.
Depending on which school has it right, the name is a corruption of Aboriginal words for place of waters, plenty of wind or the 'turpentine' with the stringy bark.
It is a fact, however, that the name entered the colonial land register in 1845 when John Brennan paid $47 for a block on which he planted grape vines and an orchard.
Enoggera was an important staging post for miners and equipment in the rush to the Gympie gold fields in the 1860s, and it has been bolstered by a large military training presence since 1855.
Enoggera is also richly stocked with schools and educational centres, including the McCauley campus of the Australian Catholic University.
Some of the schools display a strong sense of community and Our Lady of Assumption School's magnificently flowered environmental garden is one of the features of the suburb.
