Clayfield, a residential suburb on Sandgate Road, is 6 km north-east of central Brisbane. It is thought that the name arose from the deposits of clay used for brick making in neighbouring Hendra. Clayfield also includes the locality of Eagle Junction, treated as a separate suburb until the late 1960s.
