History Ascot is a historical suburb that was originally inhabited by the Aboriginal Turrbal clan. The Turrbal called the area Yowoggerra, meaning corroboree place. The clan had camping grounds on the north side of the Brisbane River around the Breakfast Creek area. In 1824, explorers Oxley and Cunningham met members of the clan there. In 1858, two Aborigines from the Ascot area, Dalinkua and Dalpie, wrote letters to The Moreton Bay Courier protesting against the treatment their people received from whites. Convict labor was used in the 1830s to clear land and build basic roads in Ascot. In 1855, James Sutherland purchased a large portion of land and named it after the prestigious Ascot Racecourse in England. It was used for horse racing until the late 1920s, and during World War II many buildings were used for General Douglas MacArthur and the Central Bureau. Ascot has experienced an increase in population over recent years, to 5,165 in 2011 and 5,777 people in 2016.
