Wilston is a suburb north-east of Newmarket, five km north of central Brisbane. Enoggera Creek is its southern boundary.

The suburb was at first regarded as an outlying district of Newmarket, near the Newmarket saleyards (1877-1931), and was used for agistment, tanneries, fellmongering and dairying. There were also extractive industries.
