The suburb takes its name from the former Munbilla railway station, whose name was "coined" in 1886 by the Railways Department using the Yuggera words mun (meaning much) and billa (meaning water) to mean a large lagoon.
Munbilla railway station was on the Ipswich-to-Dugandan and the Ipswich-to-Mount-Edwards railway lines; it was the last station before the two lines branched. The complete Dugandan line operated from 1886 to 1964 (some earlier stages being open from 1882). The Mount Edwards line operated from 1922 to 1960.
