History[edit]

Eatons Hill is situated in the Yugarabul traditional Aboriginal country.[9]

The area is named after the early pioneer William Eaton, who farmed at Albany Creek from 1874 and was elected as a member of the Pine Shire Council (later renamed Pine Rivers Shire) from 1909 to 1912.[10]

Cashs Crossing at the South Pine River was on the main route from Brisbane to Gympie. In 1891 it was proposed to build a bridge over it.[11][12] Construction of the bridge had commenced by August 1892.[13][14] South Pine Bridge was completed in November 1892.[15] It survived the disastrous floods in February 1893 despite three days of great concern.[16]

Residential development began in the early 1970s near the hill situated west of Cash's Crossing where the South Pine Road bridges the river. Eatons Hill generally consists of low-density residential housing with acreage properties in the western portions. Residential development proceeded westward during the late 1990s.[17]
