This consultation is closed.
Decision: to proceed with creating and giving names to five new localities - Lilywood, Wagtail Grove, Greenstone, Corymbia, and Waraba, and to amend the boundaries of the existing localities of Upper Caboolture, Wamuran, Bellmere and Rocksberg, as shown on the Decision Plan QPN1415.


The Department of Resources, working in partnership with Moreton Bay Regional Council, are seeking feedback on a proposal to amend four existing locality boundaries and give names to five new localities in Caboolture West.

The proposal recommends altering the boundaries of the localities of Upper Caboolture, Wamuran, Bellmere, and Rocksberg and creating new localities of Lilywood, Wagtail Grove, Greenstone, Corymbia, and Waraba.

View the existing boundaries and proposed changes.

Caboolture West is expected to become Moreton Bay Region’s largest emerging community over the next 40 years and will play a significant role in addressing population growth in South East Queensland.


Defining the new locality names and boundaries prior to future population growth and development will ensure:

  • Adequate delivery of postal and emergency services to the area.
  • Certainty of localities and addressing prior to development activities and promotion.
  • The localities reflect the future structure of the developed community and avoid or minimise addressing changes for residents.

Moreton Bay Regional Council have undertaken extensive community consultation in developing the proposal. More information on councils engagement activities are available on their web page. Consultation and engagement has also been undertaken with the Kabi Kabi Peoples Aboriginal Corporation, the registered Cultural Heritage Body for the area, leading to the endorsement of:

  • The use of the Kabi Kabi word “Waraba” as the name for one of the localities and the overall city name.
  • The proposed locality names of Lilywood, Wagtail Grove, Greenstone and Corymbia for the remaining localities.

Supporting the use of Aboriginal names and recognising First Nations people – the world’s oldest living culture – through place names strengthens our commitment towards reconciliation and supports Queensland’s Path to Treaty.
