The Brinkworth area was first settled in the 1860s; and the town laid out in 1892. Brinkworth is named after the early landowner, George Brinkworth.
Brinkworth was a junction on the Gladstone railway line from Adelaide to Gladstone in the north. The other line from Brinkworth went through Snowtown to Kadina and Wallaroo. Both were originally built as narrow gauge 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in). These lines were converted to broad gauge 1,600 mm (5 ft 3 in) in 1927 but are now closed.
