Carina Heights History and Architecture

Carina Heights is named after the neighbouring suburb Carina, from which it was officially separated in 1975. Carina took its name from an estate on Creek Road constructed in the 1850s. The property belonged to Ebenezer Thorne and was itself named after Thorne’s daughter Kate Carina.

Carina Heights is a mixture of 1935 to 1955 homes, a predominantly post-war suburb.
