Centenary Heights is a suburb located 4 kilometres from the central business district.
Previously part of Middle Ridge, the area was named Centenary Heights in 1960 in honour of the separation of Queensland from New South Wales in 1859.
The suburb contains two public schools and two private schools: Centenary Heights State High School (1968), Gabbinbar State School (1972); St Thomas More’s Primary School (Catholic, 1961) and Martin Luther Primary School (Lutheran, 1977).
The suburb has two parks: Emmerson Park, which includes two separate play areas, a barbecue, and a significant planting of mature trees; and Horners Reserve, which includes one small park and a large town water storage reserve.
