History[edit]

The town is home to the Gold Coast hinterland's oldest remaining church. The St Andrew's Wesleyan Church on Long Road was built in 1880.[4]

Eagle Heights Post Office opened on 1 July 1927 (a receiving office had been open from 1926).[5]

Formerly a suburb in its own right, in 1997, Eagle Heights was merged with other former suburbs North Tamborine and Mount Tamborine to create the larger locality of Tamborine Mountain.[6]
