Tabragalba is a locality in the Scenic Rim Region of South East Queensland, Australia.

Geography

The eastern border of Tabragalba follows a ridge line and includes Mount Tabragalba. Part of the western boundary is marked by the Albert River. The Beaudesert Nerang Road traverses the northern end. Agriculture is the predominate land use.

History

The name originates from an Aboriginal expression that was given to local pastoral station established in 1843. The name was also used for an early local government area known as Tabragalba Division which became the Shire of Tabragalba, then Beaudesert Shire. In 2008, the shire was merged into the new Scenic Rim Region.
