A brief history of the area

In its early days, the area that we now know as Queensburgh was four separate residential suburbs - Escombe, Malvern, Moseley and Northdene. These communities had been created as a result of people wanting to escape the humidity associated with life on the coast. In 1924, these four areas put their resources together to form one town, which was named Malvern. Later, when Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne in 1952, Malvern was renamed Queensburgh in her honour.
