History

Hillcrest lies to the west of Browns Plains and was originally part of Browns Plains. It is bounded by Johnson Road, Mount Lindesay Highway, the interstate railway and Coronation Road. It was gazetted as a place name in June 1987.

Hillcrest is home to the Logan West Community Centre, which began with the relocation of a house from Jacaranda Avenue, Woodridge in October 1982. The house had been used as the headquarters of the Logan and Albert Library Board and then the Burragah Aboriginal Centre.

In 1984, the wineglass water tower was constructed. The Park Ridge Ambulance Station was officially opened in May 1982 and was located under the wineglass water tower. It employed three officers and had two ambulance vehicles. One ambulance vehicle was donated by the Calam Lions Club.

A temporary fire station was also located under the wineglass water tower between 1983 and 1986, until a permanent station for Logan West was built in Orr Court. In 1988, a new community centre and a police station were built. The police station operated 24 hours a day, with 12 officers and five detectives. In August 2000, a shop-front police office was opened in Grand Plaza and, in June 2002, a $750,000 refurbishment of the police station included a Juvenile Aid Bureau, secure holding cell, electronic interview room and finger-printing facilities.

Logan West Aquatic Centre is located in Hillcrest, with public artworks in the surrounding park.
