Newmarket was originally known as “The Three Mile Scrub” due to its distance from the city, and Ashgrove Avenue, which links Enoggera Road with Waterworks Road to the west, was known as Three Mile Scrub Road. As settlement continued northward along Kelvin Grove Road in the late 19th Century, livestock saleyards opened in the area bordered by Enoggera Road, Newmarket Road, Wilston Road and Alderson Street, and were serviced by Newmarket train station after the rail line was extended from Mayne Junction in 1899.
