History

Settlement began in 1919 with the subdivision of the Highlands Estate into smaller blocks for soldiers returning from World War I. For a number of years the community belonged to the Shire of Esk, but between 1932 and 1936 a redrawing of the boundaries brought Mount Nebo into the Shire of Pine Rivers. The 2008 amalgamation of local councils means it now falls within the Moreton Bay Region.
