History and Heritage
Yeerongpilly is home to a number of heritage listed and history rich sites. One of Yeerongpilly’s most notable features is the Animal Research Institute which was added to the Queensland Heritage Register in 2008. Founded in 1909, the Animal Research Institute was a science complex serving the agricultural sector of Queensland. This building holds a lot of rich history and has been an important facet of Yeerongpilly ever since it was established. Another notable development was the Brisbane to Ipswich railway line, which passes through Yeerongpilly. The railway was opened in 1875 and was undoubtedly an important development for the Yeerongpilly community, providing the locals with a convenient transportation infrastructure to make travelling to the city and other major suburbs easy.
As well as this, The Brisbane Golf Club, a private, 36 hole, golf facility was established in 1896. This facility includes many amenities such as a pro shop and a driving range and is a famous feature of the suburb, providing the community fun and enjoyment.
Many homes in Yeerongpilly benefit from breathtaking city views, creating a picturesque cityscape of the Brisbane CBD.
