Jimboomba, Flagstone and Stockleigh

Jimboomba is a rural town with a satellite residential development. It is on the Mount Lindesay Highway and about midway between Browns Plains and Beaudesert. The name is believed to be derived from an Aboriginal expression possibly describing a booming sound or an edible grub. Jimboomba is part of Logan City, but until 2008 it was in Beaudesert Shire.
