Hillcrest is a suburb of Logan city with a relatively small population of just over 5000 people. The suburb was only given its name in 1987 after originally being part of Browns Plains. It is geographically located west to Browns Plains. Not much of an historical town apart from the Wineglass water tower which sits on the hill and is visible for many kilometres at night when lit up.
