Queensburgh is a middle class town in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa that is situated inland (southwest) from Durban and now forms part of eThekwini, the Greater Durban metropolitan area.
The hilly area was settled by people working in Durban who wanted to escape the humidity of the coastal city. In 1924, four residential townships in the area, Malvern, Escombe, Northdene and Moseley combined to form the town of Malvern.
Good place to stay to escape the humidity
In 1952, to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's coronation, Malvern received municipality status and changed its name to Queensburgh.
