Trebonne is a rural village in the Herbert River valley, 10 km north-west of Ingham. The locality reaches about 20 km up the valley, more than half way to Abergowrie (see separate entry). The village was named after Trebonne Creek which was probably named by a (Mauritian?) sugar planter, Leon Burguez, possibly as early as the 1870s when the first plantations were established in the Lower Herbert Valley.

A primary school was opened in Trebonne in 1906. It continued in 2013 with an enrolment of 21.
