Toombul, a residential locality of Brisbane, is nine km north-east of central Brisbane. Between 1883 and 1925 there was also Toombul Shire, an area of 72 sq km extending from Eagle Farm to Sandgate (but not including those places). It is thought that the name was an Aboriginal expression referring to a place with hoop pines.
