Geebung is a postwar suburb which is 12 kilometers north of central Brisbane. It was initially called as Geebong, which is a name that refers to the Persoonia species of shrubs and small trees which produce an edible fruit or nut. What brought about the change are occurrences of handwritten addresses on letters being inappropriately sent to Geelong.
The suburb is separated from Chermside and that of Wavell Heights by the Downfall Creek and the suburban part is flanked on the north-east by the North Coast railway line. According to the 2011 census, the population of the suburb reached 4,620. One of the breakthroughs in this region was the discovery of significant fossils in 2013. These were the remains of a rare 5 million year old crocodile.
The suburb has been mostly paraded with shrubs and greenery. Mature trees grow along the houses and dwellings in residential areas which are natural culprits of living clogs in the underground pipes. Tree roots find its way through holes and pipe openings as they continue to look for essential nutrients which are very much present in these pipes. Choked drainage may also occur due to hair or soap, fats or food accumulation being caught in the drainpipe and the pipes flowing underneath.
