Eaglemont is an elevated residential suburb 10 km north-east of Melbourne. It was formerly part of Ivanhoe.

The name is probably derived from Mount Eagle, a Crown Grant property acquired by Thomas Walker, New South Wales, in 1838. Walker was the author of A month in the bush of Australia (1838) and he was one of the representatives of the Port Phillip District elected to the New South Wales Legislative Council in 1843. He sold the property to John Browne, father of the author Rolf Boldrewood.
