Wavell Heights is a Brisbane suburb located 9 km north of the Brisbane central business district.

It is named after Field Marshal Lord Wavell who was the Commander-In-Chief of the Allied Forces in the Middle East during the Second World War. In 1941 the Brisbane City Council requested that the area commonly known as West Nundah be recognised as Wavell Heights. Wavell Heights is serviced by the Wavell Heights Neighbourhood Society Inc. which manages the Murray Duus park on Edinburgh Castle Road, Wavell Heights, including the subleasing of areas to a kindergarten, Karate club, girl guides, scouts and a lapitary club. The Society also manages a public tennis court and a community centre, consisting of a hall with two floors, stages and kitchen facilities. (Source: Wiki)
