The Salisbury Tram Terminus opened in late 1941 as part of Route 71, an extension from the Beaudesert line that serviced the Rocklea Munitions Work, which was a massive industrial complex housing Australia’s northernmost ammunition manufacturing plant during World War II. The complex remained open after the war as an important industrial estate, and continued to be serviced by the tram line. The last tram in Brisbane ran on 13 April 1969.
