Jinghi is a locality in the Western Downs Region, Queensland, Australia.[1]

History[edit]

The locality was original known as Jinghi Valley, which took its name from the pastoral run Jinghi Jinghi operated by Joseph King in 1849 and may have originally been part of Jimbour. The name is probably an Aboriginal word.[1]
