Yamanto is a suburb of Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. At the 2011 Australian Census the suburb recorded a population of 4,135.[1]

The origin of the suburb is from a former cotton plantation which was originally spelt as Yamahanto. Previous names used for this area were Loamside and Mine Accident. The names were given to the railway station in the Yamanto area on the now defunct Fassifern railway line.[2]

In 2010 this suburb is seeing a growth corridor being developed in the adjacent Ripley Valley Ripley, Queensland called Ecco Ripley. In conjunction with the expansion of the nearby RAAF Base Amberley the suburb is experiencing an influx of businesses as well as redevelopment of existing businesses.
