Suburb Overview

Arana Hills is a suburb within Moreton Bay, 12 km north-west of Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, Australia on the edge of the Bunyaville Forest Reserve. Its local government area is the Moreton Bay Region.

The first land purchaser in the Hills District was Edward Owens, Portion 12, in 1863.

The first land purchaser in the Arana Hills District was Henry St John Bridgeman in November 1863. This portion 9 parish of Bunya which covers a pocket of land bounded in part by Kedron Brook and Dawson Parade very soon became the property of William McCallum Park who sold to the Patrick family at the turn of the century.

The first subdivision was in 1937 named Patricks Estate with central road named Grove Avenue. The lots were 1

The early residents started a Progress Association whose effort brought to the attention of the relevant agences, the needs of the growing community, e.g. postal services, specific road maintenance etc. On behalf of that Association, Mrs Melva Welch commenced the special service of visiting each new family who moved to the area, giving them information on all local services, and, most importantly say "welcome". For twenty-eight years the Adviser Newspaper which was completely compiled and distributed by local volunteers under the umbrella of the Progress Association brought to every home in the Hills district, news items from clubs, organizations and the Pine Rivers Shire Council. Local businesses were encouraged to advertise for a very moderate fee, and the people who had been visited were also welcomed in the Adviser. Information gathered from the welcoming service visits also provided an accurate census on demographics in the suburb relating to future provision of services.

Prior to December 1962 when the new name was gazetted, the Queensland Place Names Board decreed that there were too many Camdens and Camden Parks, and this was confirmed when some confusion did occur with the area's mail being sent to Camden Park in South Australia.

There was consideration of many possible names before Mrs Pam Cory suggested that as Arana was a word for welcome this would be appropriate. Some years later, a newcomer claimed the word Orana was Welcome and that Arana was the word for Moon. Without anything more than an unsuccessful cursory check of available dictionaries of Aboriginal words, the substituted meaning was featured in the 1978 Arana Hills logo design. Because there was no written language of the Aboriginal people, the naming words were written by the Europeans as they interpreted hearing the sounds. It was the opinion of a recent seminar speaker that the vowels are not important in the native language, only the consonants. The word Urana could just as well as Orana or Arana mean welcome.

Camden Park, a small triangular area in the middle of the original housing estate, retains the name as a reminder of earlier years. Mr George Willmore, the real estate developer named many of the streets in the central Arana Hills subdivision in memory of the area around Sydney where he had lived.

Arana Hills is almost entirely a residential suburb with 20% of its area as parkland. It has a mixture of 1960s style chamferboard timber houses and more contemporary brick housing built upon steep hills, some with lovely city views. Some of the newer housing has been built on land in the Northern part of the suburb adjacent to the land previously held by the Railways as a timber reserve, and which is now Bunyaville State Forestry Park. In this Arlington chain of estates developed in the early 1990s, it is still common to see horse riders around the Collins Road area, ducks and their ducklings crossing busy roads and the occasional koala perched high up in the many trees in the district.
