The suburb appears to have been named after a native from the Loyalty Islands (near modern-day New Caledonia) who was transported in the late nineteenth century to Queensland. The Loyalty Islands (Îles Loyauté are an Archipelago in the Pacific. Such people, called Kanakas, were a cheap source of labour for sugarcane production. Kanakas were workers from various Pacific Islands employed under varying conditions in various British colonies such as British Columbia ( Canada Apparently he escaped and was subsequently employed by Alfred Foote of Ipswich. Ipswich is a city and Local Government Area situated on the Bremer River in South East Queensland, Australia. Later, he cleared land for William Grimes (related to Alfred Foote) on a hill near Sandy Creek and the property was named after him. The grave of Tarra Gindi Tasserone is located in the Ipswich Cemetery.
Prior to European occupation beginning in the early 19th century the area covered by the suburb was inhabited by Aboriginal people. According to Kidd (2000) the Coorparoo sub-group of the wider Jagara group occupied land south of the Brisbane River clustered around Oxley, Norman and Bulimba creeks. Coorparoo is a southern Suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, located approximately four Kilometres from the city It is also possible that the Yerongpan sub-group lived in the area (BRISbites, n. d. ). The Coorparoo group had cultural links to other neighboring communities including territorially-neutral pathways, river crossings and ceremonies. A bora ring was known to have been maintained in Tarragindi, possibly between present-day Barnehurst and Isabella Streets (BRISBites, n. A Bora is the name given both to an Initiation ceremony of Indigenous Australians, and to the site on which the initiation is performed d. ).
One trace of this early occupation persists in the locality and creek name, "Ekibin". According to Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines (2003) the modern name is derived from the aboriginal "Yekkabin" which referred to aquatic plants (possibly Typha angustifolia or Blechnum indicum) with edible roots which grew in the creek. Typha is a Genus of about eleven Species of Monocotyledonous flowering plants in the Monogeneric family Typhaceae According to Potter (n. d. ) the edible roots were common in the diet of Aboriginals of the Morteon Bay area. A sharp stick was used to dig out the stem, which was then dried, roasted, and pounded with a stone.
European settlement began 1857 with a survey of land by George Pratten. An early land-owner (and later Mayor of Brisbane and member of parliament), Thomas Stevens, established a woolscour and later a fellmongery in the northern part of the suburb near Essie Avenue. Another land-holder was James Toohey who leased properties for cattle runs.
During the Second World War, Tarragindi was the site of a field hospital administered first by the American Army (for soldiers treated for shell shock) and later by the British and Australian forces. According to Dunn (2001) the Ekibin Hospital was bounded by Sexton Street and Toohey Road and encompassed parts of Cracknell, Effingham, Fingal and Lutzow streets. After the war, the site was used by the Housing Commission to accommodate displaced persons. Today, little remains of the establishment except for possible foundations of a gun emplacement in the mid-section of Fingal Street. The Ekibin Memorial Park on Cracknell Road commemorates the establishment of the hospital.
The main part of the suburb lies in a valley running north-south, surrounded by ridges marked by Wellers Hill to the east and Tarragindi Hill to the west. Sandy Creek has it source in Toohey Forest to the south and flows through the major part of the suburb. The eastern flank of the Wellers Hill ridge drains into Ekibin Creek.
Tarragindi hosts two primary schools. A geographic coordinate system enables every location on the Earth to be specified in three coordinates using mainly a spherical coordinate system. The Wellers Hill Primary School is located on the junction of Weller and Toohey Roads. The school has a very active music program. In December, 2006 the school lost some buildings due to an arson attack. St. Elizabeth's Catholic Primary School is located nearby on Cracknel Road.
