King Scrub is a rural locality in the Moreton Bay Region, Queensland, Australia.[2] It is located on the northern outskirts of Dayboro.

King Scrub has some areas of rich farmlands which are now being developed as estates. Currently the most dominant estates are Avelon Downs and Park Lands estate. Both developed in early 2000.

King Scrub has a road which often floods called Finger Board Road. This road is used by the local weather station as a flood indicator.[citation needed] Finger Board Road is an important transport artery for residents in Mount Mee and beyond as it avoids going through the Dayboro town centre.
