History Albion is an inner north-eastern suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Albion had a population of 2,296 people. Breakfast Creek was named by explorer John Oxley during his 1823 exploration of the Brisbane River. The name Breakfast Creek comes from Breakfast Point, which was a rocky point of the downstream side of the creek and was named by explorer John Oxley during his 1823 exploration of the Brisbane River. In 1860 John Petrie opened a quarry at Albion, with its name coming from Thomas Hayseldon's Albion Hotel, which was so called because the white wall of Petrie's quarry reminded Hayseldon of the England's white cliffs (Albion being an old name for England). In 1883 a Baptist Church opened in Albion with a plan drawn up for Frank Mann Estate in 1929. It occupied a site that today would be in the vicinity of Comus Avenue, loosely bounded by Crosby Road to the south, Morgan Street to the east, Tower Street to the north, and Lapraik Street to the west. In 1885, it became the headquarters of the Smithfield Pony Club and later in 1895 of the Albion Park Racecourse.
