The Holland Park site is the first formal mosque in Queensland in the late 1880s. It was started by Muslims of Afghan and Indian origin who settled in the Mt Gravatt-Holland Park area; a number migrating from Cloncurry as former Cameleers. The Mosque, originally a wooden Queenslander (a tin shed was used prior, in Cloncurry) opened in 1908.
