About the Eagles

Where It All Began
The Zillmere Eagles was formed following the merger between neighbouring Windsor and Zillmere AFL clubs in 1962.
Windsor, founded in 1924, was a powerhouse in Queensland AFL up until the early 1950s, they won 12 premierships in what was a benchmark for the senior competition until bettered by Southport Football Club’s 13.
Australian Rules football has been played at Zillmere since 1925, although the club has morphed through a number of identities.
Sandgate merged with the club to form North Brisbane in 1991. North Brisbane won the 1995 but financial difficulties forced it into recess in 1996. Re-financed The Northern Eagles were formed in 1997, and were renamed Zillmere Eagles in 2005.
The club has produced VFL player Frank Dunell who won the 1984 premiership with Essendon, Danny Dickfos and recently Rueben William. A number of other players have been drafted from the Zillmere Eagles.
