Yeronga is a very sought after suburb with some river views, city views, leafy surrounds and no through traffic to other suburbs. It has excellent schools with Yeronga Primary and Yeronga State High along with a great sense of community spirit and inclusion.
Being only 7kms to the city, there is a mixture of older residents along with working young professionals and families which makes this an enticing suburb to live in.
There are two seperate shopping strips located on Fairfield road opposite the railway station which is the effective centre of the suburb. There is a smaller shopping district on Hyde Road which is across from a large dog park and walking track which winds along some raw bushland.
The name Yeronga is thought to be either derived from the Aboriginal words 'yarung' (meaning sandy or gravelly) and 'ba' (meaning place), or that it derives from the name of the house 'Yerong-lea' which was the residence of Charles Hardie Buzacott.
Yeronga was originally used for agricultural purposes, and dairy farms were established, especially on the fertile riverside and adjacent floodplains. Crops recorded as grown in the area were cotton, sugar, maize, potatoes and arrowroot. Urban residential settlement first occurred along Fairfield Road, and especially around Station Avenue (now Kadumba St) once the railway opened.
