Bald Hills

Bald Hills, an outlying northern suburb near the South Pine River, is 20 km north of central Brisbane.

The name was an obvious description of the elevated grassed rises visible among the scrub along the South Pine River, although other sources mention a distant view of a rounded profile of the D'Aguilar Range.
