Daisy Hill

Daisy Hill is a suburb of Logan City, Queensland, Australia with a large proportion protected by the Daisy Hill Conservation Park used for habitat conservation and recreation. The Dennis family were first Europeans to settle at Daisy Hill. James Dennis immigrated in 1864 on the ship Flying Cloud and married Mary Ann Markwell. Around 1870 they began selecting land and named the property Daisy Hill, supposedly because their daughters saw daisies growing on the hill.

In the 2011 census, Daisy Hill recorded a population of 6,255 people


Beenleigh is a town on the Gold Coast railway line, and best known for the Beenleigh Rum Distillery founded on the local sugar industry in the mid-1880s. European settlement in the Beenleigh district began with German Lutheran farmers at Bethania in 1864, on the Logan River, and within a few years there were also German-speaking farmers in the areas now known as Beenleigh and Waterford.

The districts were agriculturally diverse, but sugar emerges as the leading crop. In the 2011 census, Beenleigh recorded a population of 8,244 people.

North Tamborine

Founded in 1875, North Tamborine is one of the towns on the Tamborine Mountain ridge in the Gold Coast hinterland. Many early settlers grew maize and grazed dairy cattle.

A tourist road to the mountain was completed in 1924 and became the centre for social and business activities. Formerly a suburb in its own right, in 1997, North Tamborine was merged with other former suburbs Eagle Heights and Mount Tamborine to create the larger locality of Tamborine Mountain.
