Thorneside, a residential suburb in Redland City, is 17 km east of central Brisbane. Its northern and western boundaries are Moreton Bay and Tingalpa Creek respectively. It was named after an early settler, William Thorne, who subdivided his land for small farm and seaside blocks in 1913.

Thorneside is on the Cleveland railway line (1889), but the development and subdivisional activity promoted by the railway line was mainly around Ormiston and Cleveland. The rest of Redland Shire was a productive farm area supplying fruit and vegetables to Brisbane.
