Griffin, a partly developed residential suburb in the former Pine Rivers shire, is 22 km north of central Brisbane. It is situated between the Bruce Highway and Hays Inlet, with the Freshwater Creek and North Pine River defining its north and south boundaries. It was named after Francis Griffin, the first European settler in the Pine Rivers district (1843) who acquired the Whiteside pastoral run (Whiteside is a locality about 10 km west of Griffin).
