History/Origin This locality is named after the property of that name which was situated on Miles Road to the south west of Batchelor. The area was originally known as Banyan Farm, in the 1950s, when owned by Boyne Litchfield. When purchased by the Childs family, who held the land during the 1960s and 70s, the property was renamed Eva Valley after Eva Childs, wife of Bill Childs who were joint owners. Following the sale of the land by the Childs family and subsequent subdivision, the area has continued to be known as Eva Valley.
