Stretton is a southern suburb in the City of BrisbaneQueensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Stretton had a population of 4,334.

Stretton is 17 kilometres (11 mi) from the Brisbane Central Business District, and borders the suburbs of CalamvaleSunnybank HillsKarawathaKuraby, and Drewvale.

The northern part of Stretton includes several hills, but the land flattens out towards the south. The southern part has more vegetation, as it joins Karawatha Forest to the south-east and the Calamvale Creek wetlands on the south-west.

In the early 19th century, the area and many of today's suburbs around the Sunnybank area were part of a vast area known as Coopers Plains. In 1861, Governor Bowen declared a wide area that included Eight Mile Plains to Stretton as a Brisbane Agricultural Reserve. This agricultural reserve was originally used as a source of timber, but when it was found to be good farming land, settlers quickly turned it into farms that produced sought-after fruit, vegetables, and poultry.

A military map from 1922 shows only four houses in the area that is now Stretton.

Stretton was gazetted as a suburb of Brisbane in 1972, and was named after George Stretton, a settler, postmaster and hotelier at Browns Plains in the 1870s.

Stretton State College opened on 1 January 2006.
