Bald Hills is the northernmost suburb of the Brisbane City Council in Queensland, Australia.

Bald Hills is a largely residential suburb. It is mostly surrounded by bushland, but in the last few years some of the bush areas have been cleared to make way for new residential areas. It also borders onto the Bald Hills Flats – a large flood plain on the western side of the suburb that is used for cattle grazing. The South Pine River flows through the flood plain and forms the western border of the suburb. The South Pine River converges with the North Pine River and the combined flow, Pine River, forms the northern border. Along the banks of Pine River within Bald Hills is a large environmental park called the Tinchi Tamba Wetlands Reserve. The Pine River empties into Bramble Bay, between Redcliffe and Brighton.

The most prominent structure is the Bald Hills Radiator, the ABC's 198 metre tall AM radio transmission tower located on the eastern side of the suburb. Bald Hills is the home of the Bald Hills-Lawnton Lions Cricket Club. It is also home to the breeding and training centre for Guide Dogs for the Blind Association of Queensland.

There are two schools in the suburb. Bald Hills State School is a state primary school that was formed in 1866 and is the fourth oldest primary school in Queensland. The other school is St Paul's School, an Anglican co-educational private school from Prep to Year 12.

Transport

Bald Hills railway station provides access to regular Citytrain services to Brisbane and Ipswich, as well as Caboolture and the Sunshine Coast.
