Sunnybank

Updated on February 2, 2013

Sunnybank, now a suburb of Brisbane, but still community in its own right.

Sunnybank is located on the south side of Brisbane. It is between Mt Gravatt, Eight Mile Plains, Runcorn, Algester, Acacia Ridge, Coopers Plains and Macgregor. Mains Road runs through Sunnybank and links it with Calamvale to the South and Beaudesert Road.

Sunnybank got its name from a local farm, Sunnybrae, owned by the Gillespies. Sunnybank has very fertile soils and a rainfall suitable for farming.

Now days Sunnybank is a large residential suburb. The farms have been replaced with houses and a range of shopping centres. Gardens around Sunnybank still thrive in the loamy soils.

Kookaburra sitting on a fence at Sunnybank

Sunnybank while an urban suburb of Brisbane still has a large wildlife population.

Kookaburra's are a common site in Sunnybank and can mostly be seen in the early morning and late in the afternoon. The Kookaburra is well known for its very loud laugh. Often 2 or more kookaburras will get together and all laugh loudly together making a unique Australian afternoon sound.

Kookaburras eat small animals such as lizards and snakes. They like open bushland where they can see their prey from the camouflage of a gum tree.
