A sub-Camp of Enoggera, connected with the Alderley Railway Camp, which flourished into the 1880s/ early 1890s. It once featured Waterholes where Enoggera Road runs, and out towards Alderson Street. It was sometimes used for Corroborees. This became the back of Tracksons’ property (Sedgley Grange). The Tracksons maintained a benevolent interest in the enCampment. Important local headmen such as King Jackie Delaney and Kerwalli (King Sandy) often resided here. Funerary preparations (defleshing the deceased) were recorded at the southern end of this park.
