Kulpi is a rural town and locality in the Toowoomba Region, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Kulpi had a population of 77 people.


The site of the town of Kulpi was part of a selection made by Fred Beckmann from the Rosalie Plains pastoral run. Mr. Beckman built two establishments, the Pioneer Hotel and a store which formed the centre of the town. The settlement was originally known as Rosalie, however the name was soon changed to Kulpi, to avoid confusion with the Rosalie Plains Homestead, which was a small town in itself. The name Kulpi came from an aboriginal word meaning "charred logs".


Library services in Kulpi are provided by the Toowoomba Regional Council's mobile library service. The van visits Kulpi State School on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month.
