Willowbank is a mostly rural district 12 km south-west of central Ipswich. It is on the Cunningham Highway as the road turns south from Amberley RAAF Base.

The place name is over 100 years old, apparently having originated with the Willowbank Estate, c1890. In common with neighbouring Purga and Mutdapilly, Willowbank was subdivided into farm lots. A provisional school was opened in 1906. In 1914 the school was renamed Lamington and continued until 1943.
