Geography[edit]

Eatons Hill generally consists of low-density residential housing with acreage properties in the western portions. Most of the suburb has been developed since the 1980s. New subdivisions are still being built. Many of the established large homes constructed on the sprawling acreage properties behind the densely populated areas of Eatonvale and the Eatons Hill Country Club have broken real estate sales records for the region in recent times. The creek that runs through Eatons Hill (commonly known as "drapers") is a very popular teen attraction.
