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.
In the 2011 census, Eatons Hill recorded a population of 7,993 people, 50.4% female and 49.6% male.
The median age of the Eatons Hill population was 34 years, 3 years below the national median of 37.
