Kedron, a residential suburb on Gympie Road and immediately north of Lutwyche and Gordon Park, is eight km north of central Brisbane. It is separated from Kedron Brook by Gordon Park.

Kedron Brook, with headwaters in Ferny Grove, is a significant watercourse that enters a wetland at Toombul near the airport. It was there in 1838 that German Moravian missionaries formed a settlement for the protection of Aborigines, and named the watercourse after the Biblical Kedron River.
