- Electrician Tarragindi
Tarragindi is a suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, 7 km from the CBD. It has a population of approximately 12,000 residents.
Tarragindi is known for its parks and liveability. The core of the suburb lies in a valley running north-south, surrounded by ridges marked by the highest points, Wellers Hill to the east and Tarragindi Hill to the west. Sandy Creek has its source in Toohey Forest to the south and flows through the major part of the Tarragindi.
Prior to European settlement in the early 19th century, Tarragindi was inhabited by the Coorparoo Aboriginal group from the wider Jagera group, also referred to as Yaggera (from Moreton Bay to the base of Toowoomba ranges), who occupied the land south of the Brisbane River around Oxley, Norman and Bulimba Creeks. A bora ring was known to have been maintained in the area, possibly near Barnehurst and Isabella Streets, Tarragindi.
The Tarragindi Name
The suburb was named after a man from the Loyalty Islands (near New Caledonia) who was transported in the late nineteenth century to Queensland. Tarragindi and other Pacific Island people were used as cheap (or unpaid) sources of labour for sugarcane production.
Apparently, Tarragindi escaped and was employed by Alfred Foote in Ipswich. Later, he cleared land for Foote's relative, William Grimes, on a hill near Sandy Creek and this property was named after Tarragindi. He remained with the Foote family in Ipswich until just before he died aged 63. The grave of Tarra Gindi Tasserone is located in the Ipswich General Cemetery.
- The median age of the Tarragindi population is 37 years, the same as the national median.
- 80.2% of people living in Tarragindi were born in Australia, compared to the national average of 69.8%.
- Tarragindi has the highest owner occupancy of any suburb in the southern corridor of Brisbane at 90%.
