Munruben is a rural/residential suburb immediately east of Greenbank and south of Park Ridge. It was named after a leasehold grazing property occupied by William Norris, c1840-60. The property was about 16,000 acres, extending from Oxley Creek, Greenbank, to the Logan River, just beyond Munruben’s eastern boundary.
Formally named in 1991, Munruben was in Beaudesert Shire until 2008, when it was transferred to Logan City.
