About Eagle Farm

Get directions

Eagle Farm first appeared as a name in 1839, identifying a cultivation area in convict era Brisbane. Presumably, the name was derived from the presence of wedge-tailed eagles in the area. The Eagle Farm Women’s Prison and Factory, a Queensland Heritage registered site since 1990, was opened in 1829 in an attempt to separate male and female prisoners. Despite additional fortifications, rendezvous between prisoners still occurred and by July 1839 the prison was closed.
