Toowong, an inner residential suburb, is four km south-west of central Brisbane. It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal word describing a bird, or the call of a bird, possibly the Koel or Cooee bird, a species of Cuckoo. Its call is described as loud and mellow, not unlike a cooee.
Toowong Shire was designated a town in 1903, consistent with its urbanisation, train and tram services. From about 900 dwellings, the number grew to about 2500 by the early 1920s. In 1925 Toowong municipality was incorporated into the Greater Brisbane council.
Toowong had a pronounced non-Catholic demography, but in 1903 a parish school was transferred to the convent in Grove Street. In 1930 a new brick church of St Ignatius Loyola was built there, and in 1948 a new school was also constructed. The site adjoined Brisbane Boys College, transferred from Clayfield to Toowong in 1930. The convent, church and the boys’ college are listed on the Queensland heritage register. In 2007 the Queensland Academy for Science, Mathmatics and Technology (year 12) was opened on the site of the Toowong State College (1963).
In 1962-63 bus services replaced the Toowong tram service, the first move in a process to retire the metropolitan tram service in 1969.
Toowong has the Anzac Park and Toowong Park sport and recreational facilities and a sports ground on Toowong Creek near Brisbane Boys College. Coronation Drive and the Regatta Hotel are both listed on the Australian heritage register.
Toowong Village drive-in shopping centre (1986), west of the railway station, is a sub-regional retail hub, quite in contrast to its Village name. It has a department store, a discount department store and about 90 other shops
