Taringa is a suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Taringa had a population of 8,376 people. == Geography == Taringa is 6.8 kilometres (4.2 mi) by road south-west of the Brisbane GPO. The suburb of Taringa borders Brisbane's Mt Coot-Tha, Indooroopilly and St Lucia, and is dominated by a ridge that runs the length of Swann Road, with steep slopes on either side of the ridge.Taringa is mostly residential, except for a small number of commercial buildings mostly clustered along Moggill Road. It is a popular neighbourhood among the students of the University of Queensland and the Queensland University of Technology because of its proximity to the universities and to Brisbane CBD. == History == The name Taringa is a combination of two Aboriginal words: tarau (stones) and nga (made up of). Together, they mean "place of stones".The Main Line railway from Roma Street railway station to Indooroopilly railway station opened on 14 June 1875 with the area being served by West Milton railway station (as it was initially known) before being renamed Taringa later that year.On 15 December 1883 auctioneer John W.

The sale include the house Ellerslie on 1 acre (0.40 ha) of land.On 14 February 1885 auctioneer John W. Todd offered 79 suburban sites in the Taringa Township, immediately north of the Taringa railway station. 58 of the lots were sold for a total of £1012/15/0.In August 1886 auctioneer John W. Todd offered 32 buildings sites (all 0.75-acre (0.30 ha) or larger) in the Belgrave and Riverview Estate in "South Toowong". The estate was bounded by Swan Road to the north, Indooroopilly Road to the east, Todd Street to the south, and Kobada Street to the west.On 19 March 1887 auctioneer R.J. Cottell offered suburban lots in the Taringa Township, which was along Harrys Road between Stanley Terrace and present-day Moggill Road.
