Rocklea is a well-known suburb of Queensland, Australia. Its postcode 4106 is shared with 2 other suburbs; Brisbane Market and Rocklea Dc. The suburb has a total of around 1255 (2011) population and an area of 9.1 km2. Strategically located 12 km (7 mi) south west of the Brisbane city centre, it is surrounded by suburbs such as Tennyson, Moorooka, Salisbury, Corinda, Archerfield and Coopers Plains. The west of the suburb is bordered by the Oxley Creek.
The suburb is named after the Rocky Waterholes Creek in the area, having been surrounded by uncultivated field or meadow. Rocklea is mostly an industrial suburb and a home to many large firms such as those related to transport industries mainly because of its proximity to the Archerfield Airport.
Rocklea is situated at the end of the Ipswich Motorway which makes it a fairly convenient place to stay for people needing access to the Brisbane CBD, Ipswich and other businesses based in the nearby suburbs. The Beenleigh line train station also makes the major areas in Brisbane within reach in just a few minutes.
The lone school found in the area is Rocklea State School, a coeducational government primary school. One of the smallest and oldest school in Brisbane having been built in 1885, it caters for years prep to Grade 7. Church attendances have tended to be in neighbouring suburbs, and the sole remaining place of worship is the Our Lady of Vladimir Church, a Russian Orthodox Parish situated at Douglas Road.
The suburb of Rocklea is also made popular as the host to the Brisbane Markets (100 hectare area), a premier public market facility during the weekend. You will find almost everything you need in the Saturday Fresh Market, from baked goods, to fresh seafood, fresh fruit and vegetables, gourmet and a wide variety of flowers. Gourmet and exotic foods plus lifestyle goods and plants are also available. On the other hand, the Sunday Discovery Market lets you browse through a range of new and second hand treasures for your home, backyard, kids and clothing. You also get to enjoy live entertainment at the food court. Catching the public transport is trouble-free as the Rocklea train station is only 790 metres away and the Great Circle bus stops right outside the Market.
The usually quiet suburb is transformed into a sea of fabulous retro cars during August of each year for the Greazefest Kustom Kulture Festival. A variety of Holdens, Valiants, Fords and Chryslers, rockabilly music and fashion, vintage bikes, art, pinstripes, tattoos, markets and more are showcased at the Rocklea Showgrounds during the event.
Considered as one of Brisbane’s most flood prone suburbs, Rocklea experienced severe damage in both the 1974 Brisbane flood and 2010–2011 Queensland floods and is mainly attributed to its tributaries, Stable Swamp Creek and Rocky Waterholes Creek. After the 2011 flood, home and land values in the suburb have depreciated, with median house price decreasing by 23.9%. Having survived the flooding, Rocklea is slowly rebuilding and slowly trying to bounce back in the market.
Close proximity to the CBD, accessible by train or bus, quick access to North, South, East and Western freeways and more importantly, home to one of the best markets. Rocklea is definitely a suburb to watch over the next few years.
