Everton Hills is a suburb in the Moreton Bay Region, Queensland, Australia.[2] In the 2016 census, Everton Hills had a population of 5,938 people.[1]

Geography[edit]

Located in the north-west of the Brisbane metropolitan area, the suburb extends northwest from Everton Park; this separation of suburbs is marked by a park called 'Boundary Park'. Everton Hills' southern boundary runs along the Kedron Brook, separating it from Mitchelton. It is also located at the edge of the Bunyaville Forest Reserve. Informally it is part of the Hills District.[3]

History[edit]

Everton Hills is situated in the Yugarabul traditional Indigenous Australian country.[4]

Everton Hills takes its name from its neighbouring suburb Everton Park which in turn was named after the residence of pioneer settler Ambrose McDowall, who named his residence after Everton, a suburb in Liverpool, England.[2]

In the 1890s, the town of Bunyaville (27°23′25″S 152°58′38″E / 27.3903°S 152.9772°E / -27.3903; 152.9772 (Bunyaville (formerly Kedron))) was located north of South Pine Road in the present-day suburbs of Everton Hills and Everton Park.[5][6] Until 1891, it was known as Kedron after Kedron Brook which flows through the area.[7][8]

Bunyaville Baptist Church opened on Saturday 2 July 1932. It was on Timms Road (now in Everton Hills) on land donated by Arthur Timms with some financial assistance from the Newmarket Baptist Church. It was built "in a day" on Saturday 4 June 1932.[9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16] Later,[when?] it became known as the Everton Hills Baptist Church. Subsequently,[when?] the former baptist church building was relocated to the Hills Church at 79 Queens Road (27°23′12″S 152°58′55″E / 27.3866°S 152.9820°E / -27.3866; 152.9820 (Former Bunyaville / Everton Hills Baptist Church building)).[17]

Prince of Peace Lutheran College opened on 3 January 1984.[18] The Prince of Peace Lutheran Church opened adjacent to the school in 1986, having been previously located in Maundrell Terrace, Chermside West.[19]

Prior to 2008, Everton Hills was in the Pine Rivers Shire, now amalgamated into Moreton Bay Region.[20]
