Morningside is a suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.[2] It is located 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) east of the CBD,[5] and borders Cannon Hill, Norman Park, and Hawthorne.

At the time of the 2011 Census 47.8% of occupied dwellings in Morningside were detached houses, and 29.2% were semi-detached houses, while units accounted for a further 22.9%.[1] There are many older-style weatherboard and chamferboard homes in this area as well as modern units and townhouses.

Morningside was named after a local estate belonging to David Longlands.[7] The name of the estate itself likely referred either to the Scottish town, or to the estate's location on the eastern side of Brisbane.[2]

History

The area was first settled by Europeans in the early 1870s.[4] The land at that time was used mainly for agriculture; in particular, dairy, sugarcane, and tobacco production.[4][8]

The old suburb of Colmslie was merged into Morningside.

At the corner of Bennetts and Wynnum Roads is the historic Bulimba Cemetery (also known as the Balmoral Cemetery) dating from 1875. Morningside started off as a rural area with small dairy and tobacco farms before becoming a popular residential area in the post-war boom.

Until 13 April 1969 electric trams skirted the western edge of the suburb, operating along Wynnum Road and Riding Road.

The Cairncross Dockyard was constructed in Morningside between 1942 and 1944. The facility closed in 2014, and as of 2016 was to be redeveloped into a commercial and residential area.[9]

Demographics

The 2011 Census recorded 9,399 residents in Morningside, of whom 50.8% were female and 49.2% were male. The median age of the population was 32; 5 years younger than the Australian average.[1] 71.3% of people living in Morningside were born in Australia, with the next most common countries of birth being New Zealand (4.8%), England (4%), India (1.4%), South Africa (1.1%), and South Korea (1%). 84.6% of people spoke English as their first language, while the other most common responses were Spanish (0.9%), Korean (0.8%), Mandarin (0.8%), German (0.6%), and Cantonese (0.6%).[1] 45.7% of households in Morningside consisted of couples without children, 34.8% consisted of couples with children, and 15.5% were made up of single-parent families.[1]
