Gaythorne is a residential suburb eight km north-west of central Brisbane. Until 2000 it was a locality, comprising the western part of Enoggera. Its northern boundary is Kedron Brook, and its western and eastern boundaries are Prospect Road and the Enoggera Park. From there it runs south-west of Samford Road to the Enoggera Military Camp.

Gaythorne was named after a property owned by Howard Bliss. Until 1923, however, the locality and railway station were named Rifle Range.
