The South Pine River is a minor river located in South East Queensland, Australia. It rises on the D'Aguilar Range and passes through the Samford Valley in the Moreton Bay Region local government area.
Location and features
The South Pine River rises in the D'Aguilar Range below Mount Glorious near Highvale, northwest of Brisbane, and flows generally east, to form its confluence with the North Pine River at Lawnton, where the river forms the Pine River. The river flows mostly through the Moreton Bay Region, through Samford before snaking through the outer northwestern suburbs of Brisbane where it divides the suburbs of Eatons Hill and Brendale to the north and Albany Creek to the south. In this area it is joined by its major tributary Dawson Creek. Meeting with Albany Creek in the suburb of the same name, it carries the city council boundary between the Moreton Bay Regional Council and the Brisbane City Council down to its confluence. To the northwest of the South Pine River are the Pine Rivers suburbs of Strathpine and Lawnton, while on the southeast are Brisbane City Council suburbs Bridgeman Downs and Bald Hills. The river descends 287 metres (942 ft) over its 41-kilometre (25 mi) course.
On early maps the river was called Eden River.
The Pine Rivers Shire draws its name from the South Pine, North Pine and Pine Rivers.
