HistoryEdit

The town is home to the Gold Coast hinterland's oldest remaining church. The St Andrew's Wesleyan Church on Long Road was built in 1880.[3]

Eagle Heights Post Office opened on 1 July 1927 (a receiving office had been open from 1926).[4]

Formerly a suburb in its own right, in 1997, Eagle Heights was merged with other former suburbs North Tamborine and Mount Tamborine to create the larger locality of Tamborine Mountain.[5]

At the 2006 census, Eagle Heights had a population of 2,702.[6]
