Zillmere Eagles Australian Football Club (formerly Windsor-Zillmere, North Brisbane and Northern Eagles) is an Australian rules football clubs that plays in the QAFA (A) competition. It reformed the senior side in 2013 and it was undefeated all year in the SEQAFL State Div 4 northern competition.


The club once competed in the AFL Queensland State League competition. The club is based in the suburb of Zillmere in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. It ceased to play in the league in 2008.


The Windsor-Zillmere club formed from the merger of neighbouring Windsor and Zillmere Football Clubs in 1962.

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 after playing a handful of games but they have been produced by junior clubs surrounding Zillmere. Players include, Daniel Pratt, Robert Copeland, Josh Drummond, Ben Warren, Brendan Whitecross, Marcus Allan, Daniel Dzufer, Mitchell Hahn and Brett Backwell.

In October 2008, AFLQ transferred the licence from Zillmere Eagles to neighbouring Aspley as part of an independent review which looked into the best long term option for Australian football in North Brisbane.
