Home Hill was conceived in December 1911 when the State Government balloted off 58 blocks of land which were previously part of Inkerman Downs Station.
Most of those blocks were developed into sugar cane farms and the influx of new settlers led to a demand for a new town on the southern side of the Burdekin River. The town of Home Hill was established by 1913.
