Kholo is a rural locality in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.[3] In the 2016 census, Kholo had a population of 396 people.[1]

Geography

Kholo is an outer locality of Brisbane, located 22 kilometres (14 mi) south-west of the Brisbane CBD.

History

Kholo Provisional School opened circa 1 January 1877. It was described in June 1877 as being in a barn in an inconvenient location.[4] In June 1878, the local residents were advocating for a more permanent state school.[5] In September 1883, a report describes the school as having "most irregular" attendance.[6] In July 1884, Kholo was again mentioned as having an average attendance of 16 students out of 30 enrolled.[7] It closed circa 1 December 1884.[8][9] In July 1886, local residents asked for a state school to replace the former provisional school,[10] but no further schools were built in the area.

In May 1881 tenders were called for the erection of a provisional school in Lower Kholo (now Mount Crosby),[11] which seems to result in Kholo Provisional School being casually referred to as Upper Kholo Provisional School.[12]

Kholo, Mount Crosby and Karana Downs were transferred from the City of Ipswich to became part of City of Brisbane in 2000.[13]

In the 2011 census, Kholo had a population of 397 people.[14]
