Booroobin is a rural/residential locality on the eastern side of the Connondale Range, 32 km west of Caloundra. It contains the headwaters of the Stanley River and Scrub Creek (a tributary of the Mary River). A few kilometres north of Booroobin there are also the headwaters of the Obi Obi Creek. It is thought that the name derived from an Aboriginal expression describing a possum or a tree.

Booroobin had a primary school (1919-53), and before local government amalgamation in 2008 it was divided by the boundary between Caloundra City and Caboolture Shire. It is now in Sunshine Coast Regional Council. While some residents commute to work, there are several orchard, cattle and dairy holdings in Boorobin.

Booroobin contains the Bellthorpe Forest Reserve.
