Nobby, a small rural town, is 30 km south of Toowoomba. The origin of the name is obscure: when the railway from Toowoomba to Hendon was being constructed in 1868, the locality was known as the McDonald Camp: later the locality was known as the Nobbys and despite a temporary official renaming as Davenport, the previous name prevailed.
