About Auchenflower

Auchenflower is an inner suburb of the City of Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland, Australia. It is approximately 2.5 kilometres west of the Brisbane CBD bordering the Brisbane River.

History of Auchenflower

The area was formerly populated by rural estates from Milton to Toowong in the 1850s.

John Ward, a Brisbane ironmonger acquired a block rising from the river bank north-west to Milton Road in 1876. He built a substantial house on the highest level ground part with a view south-west to Mount Coot-tha. In 1880, the house was sold to Thomas McIlwraith.

McIlwraith named the suburb Auchenflower after the McIlwraith family estate in Ayrshire, Scotland. Auchenflower is a Gaelic name for ‘field of flowers’.
