Australia's Country Way


A rural hub with a pub to service weary travellers, Jambin is on the Burnett Highway just south of Smoky Creek. Part of the Callide Valley, the town is wedged between the Callide Creek to the west and the highway to the east, making it a picturesque spot to stop. Callide Creek is a vital tributary of the Don River, supporting all kinds of farming, cultural and recreational activities. The creek is also a favourite with fishing buffs and well stocked with local varieties including, saratoga, golden perch and yellow belly. For a tiny village Jambin holds some big events. Working Dog Trials in June and the Champagne Campdraft in September head the billing of local events. The Events section of this guide has all the details. A drive along the Argoon-Kilburnie Road will take you to the heritage listed Kilburnie Homestead. Built in 1884, this beautifully maintained pastoralist’s home has been in the Campbell family for four generations and was heritage listed with the Queensland Government in 1992.
