Greenbank, a rural/residential locality in Logan City, is 30 km south of central Brisbane.

Originally well-timbered land which provided an important local hardwood industry, Greenbank was opened up for farm selections in the 1870s. Teviot Road was the thoroughfare to the Logan River - the area's most convenient outlet for transporting timber and farm produce - and the Teviot Junction hotel was opened at the corner of Greenbank and Teviot Roads in 1880. De-licensed, it is one of Greenbank's earliest buildings.
