Duncraig

Adjacent to Greenwood, Carine and Sorrento, approx 15 kms north of the city, this suburb was established in the mid-1970's. The name Duncraig is Scottish, as are many street names in the suburb. Duncraig was the developer's promotional label and this title prevailed probably though common usage and was officially adopted in 1969. Duncraig covers a fairly large area. The section to the south of Warwick Road is aptly known as South Duncraig
