A rural locality under the Shire of Kingaroy local government area in the South Burnett region of Queensland, Coolabunia is located 10 kilometres southeast of Kingaroy, 14.3 kilometres northwest of Nanango, 74.4 kilometres southwest of Goomeri and 203 kilometres northwest of the state capital of Brisbane. The town was named after a pastoral run that in turn was believed to be named after an Aboriginal word that describes a sleeping koala. It was also a resting place for Aborigines travelling to the Bunya Mountains to the southwest. Europeans settled in the area in the early 1880s, with closer-settlement farms established in the next decade. Farming and timber harvesting were the primary industries in the early days of the village. Today, Coolabunia is a primarily residential suburb with a number of small businesses. Its main township sits on a bend of the D’Aguialar Highway, which passes through the town and connects it to the nearby towns of Kingaroy and Hodgleigh.
