Eatons Hill

Eatons Hill is a residential suburb in the Pine Rivers Shire, 17 km north-west of central Brisbane. Its southern boundary follows an arc of the South Pine River (at Bunya and Albany Creek) and the northern boundary is Eatons Crossing Road, also running in an arc and intersecting with the River at Eatons Crossing.

Eatons Hill sits on a rise between Eatons Hill State (primary) School and the local reservoir. The name is that of a local family: William Eaton farmed at Albany Creek (from 1874) and Albert Eaton was a Pine Rivers Shire councillor (1909-12).
