Rochedale is an outer southern suburb of the City of BrisbaneQueensland, Australia. It is 17 kilometres (11 mi) south-east of the Brisbane central business district. At the 2016 Australian Census the suburb recorded a population of 3,175. The suburb's western boundary is partially aligned with the Gateway Motorway and Bulimba Creek.

During convict settlement, explorers passed through the region but it was not until 1865 that the first settlers started farming the area's rich alluvial soil. The area takes its name from the Roche family, who emigrated from Ireland to Australia in 1860 and settled in the region. The family built a homestead they called Rochedale in 1868. During the 1960s residential development took off in the area. One local builder, Jack Davey was responsible for some of the new estates off Rochedale Road between Underwood Road and Priestdale Road. Some of the street names are family names such as Rhonda Street and Davey Street. The family lived in the area until the mid 1990s.

The suburb of Rochedale is supported by many community organisations including sporting clubs, religious entities, youth organisations and educational groups. In 1956, the Rochedale Scout Group was formed and established a Scout Den on the corner of Grieve and Rochedale Roads. This parcel of land was zoned for recreational use by the Queensland Government.

In 1981, the Redeemer Lutheran College was established.

The Rochedale dump began operations in 1991. A waste-to-energy facility has been generating electricity since 2004.

Rochedale State School was established at the intersection of Miles Platting Road and Rochedale Road in 1931. In previous elections, the controversy on whether a dump should be built in Rochedale or not featured heavily in some candidates' campaigns.

From 2009, Rochedale is expected to experience major growth from 1,200 residents to over 17,000 over the course of 15–20 years. This is due to 'The Rochedale Urban Community Development' where bush and farm lands have been approved by the Brisbane City Council to be turned into housing estates.

As Rochedale backs onto the Priest Gully a wildlife corridor has been set up to preserve the local flora and fauna.
