JIMBOOMBA

Jimboomba is a rapidly growing dormitory suburb of Brisbane. There is no particular reason to visit, but the attempt to preserve two old buildings deserves to be noted.

Jimboomba is an Aboriginal word meaning "loud thunder, no rain”

Jimboomba has a large number of services, including an auxiliary/rural fire brigade and permanent ambulance service, a police station, domestic shopping, hotel, medical-dental services and primary schools. Jimboomba has a growing industrial area that provides services for vehicles, irrigation and home-water supplies produce supplies, light manufacturing and landscape gardening.

The Flagstone housing estate at Jimboomba sometimes gets confused with the townships of Flagstone Creek and Upper Flagstone which are decade’s old towns in the Lockyer Valley.

Cattle grazing, dairy farming and hobby farms are the main industries. There are large numbers of horses kept on or near residential properties for riding, for pleasure and for competition.

The Queensland government's current plan is that this area is part of the Greater Brisbane Region with Jimboomba an outer suburb of Brisbane. Jimboomba became part of the Logan City Council following council amalgamations in March 2008.

The Jimboomba United Church is one of the very few old buildings with any character remaining. The Old Catholic is just a building. The Anglican and Baptist new characterless structures

The Jimboomba War Memorial is within the Rotary Park.

The Jimboomba Hotel is the Tavern Barn concept.

When the traveler reaches Jimboomba, just keep going.
