Samsonvale is a rural/residential suburb of the former Pine Rivers Shire, 30 km north of central Brisbane. Mount Samson (690m) is at an eastern point of the D'Aguilar Range, about four km north-east of Mount Glorious. Mount Samson is shown on surveyor Robert Dixon's map of the Moreton Bay district, but the origin of its name is apparently unrecorded.
