Jabuk is a former township situated 10 km west of Geranium on the Pinnaroo railway line and the Mallee Highway.

Jabuk appears to be named after the nearby Marmon Jabuk Range, but the origin of that name is unclear. It could be named from an Afghan word by a camelleer, or from a local Aboriginal word.

There is also a War Memorial, institute, football oval, tennis courts with lights and a play ground.


Jabuk has a population of 50-60 people including several close houses.
