Brendale is a suburb north of Brisbane located immediately south of Strathpine on the South Pine River. The origin of the suburb name is from the name given to a horse stud established by William Bowden in the early 1960's. Brendale is mostly an industrial suburb, although several parks exist within it. It contains a Powerlink 275/110 kV electrical transmission substation called South Pine Substation, as well as a waste treatment plant.
Brendale is home to a world-class Remote Control Car racing track. World titles were held at this track for 1/10 Scale IC in 2006 and 1/5 Scale in 2007. The track has hosted countless Queensland and Australian Titles.
