Kedron Shire Modern Suburbs

Kedron Shire showing Modern Suburbs


This original map of the old Kedron Shire has the modern suburbs names superimposed on it. The Shire disappeared when all the local shires were amalgamated to form the Brisbane City Council in 1925.

It shows the wide range of suburbs that have been allotted to the Society to cover. We need material from all of these places to store in our archives so that people can freely access them.

We invite people to explore any of these suburbs and we will store them for you.
