Bahrs Scrub

Bahrs Scrub

Bahrs Scrub is a suburb of Logan City, Queensland, Australia.

Geography

It consists predominantly of acreage blocks although recent developments have seen suburbia encroach on the otherwise serene suburb.

History

As the name suggests, the area was originally scrub land. The origin of the name is less clear. It has been attributed to early German settlers, Carl Wilhelm Bahr and his son, Wilhelm Bahr. The earliest references to the location call it Jimmybark Scrub and the nearby hill Bark Hill (now Bahrs Hill), so the current names may be a corruption of these.

Windaroo Valley State High School opened on 1 January 1994.
