Located within shouting distance of KZN’s bustling commercial centre, Durban, Queensburgh forms part of the eThekweni municipality (the Greater Durban Metropolitan Area) and, as legend has it, owes its founding to colonial settlers looking to escape Durban’s summer humidity. Modern-day Queensburgh arose, firstly, from the consolidation of a number of towns in 1924 (that is, Malvern, Escombe, Moseley and Northdene) into a single town, Malvern. In 1952, however, Malvern changed its name to Queensburgh to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
