Edens Landing, a residential suburb on the south side of the Logan River, is 3 km north-west of Beenleigh and 30 km south-east of central Brisbane. It was formed in 1985 by severances from its neighbours, Bethania and Holmview, and was named after a ferry owner who operated on the Logan River in the 1860s. The railway station, which is on the south coast line, was installed and named in about 1985.

Edens Landing was developed in stages, beginning with a Leighton Properties estate. The south-east corner remained unbuilt nearly 20 years after the first houses. The main thoroughfare is Castile Crescent, on which is found a small local shopping centre and the primary school (1997). There are numerous neighbourhood reserves and a retirement village. In contrast to Bethania near the Logan River, Edens Landing is elevated.
