You may not be aware but there is a little piece of Italy right in the middle of Moorooka. Giardini Lane!
It’s the previously unnamed lane that joins Wall Street to Goodwin Terrace.
This lane is now the major access point for unit owners in the recently completed two-storey development along its northern side, but also serves as a convenient access point from Mayfield Road, Wall Street to Goodwin Terrace.
It has been difficult to establish the exact derivation of the name but it has been attributed to the Italian word ‘Giardini’ meaning ‘gardens’ in English.
