Kalinga

Kalinga, a suburban locality in Wooloowin, is 7km north of central Brisbane. Its northern boundary is Kedron Brook, along which is the extensive Kalinga Park. The other side of the Brook is Nundah.

Kalinga Park was officially opened as a reservation area in 1910 for residents of Nundah, Wooloowin and Eagle Junction. These areas were close to the railway line and bus service. Shops ran along Lodge Road, and there was a local cinema continuing into postwar years. The community’s open space was Melrose Park, which includes the Kalinga bowling club. Kalinga has a mixture of interwar Queenslander houses and more recent flats. It ceased being a separate suburb and became part of Wooloowin in 1975 and has just been separated back to its own suburb again.

Teneriffe

Teneriffe is an inner suburb of the City of Brisbane. It is located 2.5kms north-east of the CBD and borders Bowen Hills, Fortitude Valley, New Farm, and Newstead.

Teneriffe was defined as a separate suburb in 2010, before which it was a locality of Newstead. The suburb was incorporated into Newstead in 1975, and had been a separate suburb prior to this. The suburb was once an important wool trading hub and was the location of Australia’s largest submarine base during World War II.

Through the conversion of wool stores and factories to residential apartments, the area has been transformed from a riverside industrial hub to a mostly high density residential area. Most of the Queenslander style homes have been preserved and renovated. The local school, New Farm State School is supplemented by state and private schools in the neighbouring suburbs. The Teneriffe ferry wharf connects the suburb to CityCat and CityFerry services.
