Kobble Creek is a rural suburb within the Moreton Bay Region of Queensland, Australia.

Kobble Creek, the locality, is situated along Mount Samson Road to the south of Dayboro, approximately 45 km NW of Brisbane central business district.

The locality is named after the creek with that forms part of the catchment area of Lake Samsonvale (North Pine Dam), one of the three main water-suppliers to the metropolitan region.

Kobble Creek was, in years gone by, predominantly a dairy farming community with some banana and pineapple farming on surrounding hillsides. As a farming community, Kobble Creek supported a butter factory, primary school, and railway station, the latter two located near the site of the current Samsonvale Rural Fire Brigade. Following the forced resumption of much of the best farming land in the district to build the North Pine Dam and flood Lake Samsonvale, today the district is predominately a rural-dormitory zone with very limited farming undertaken.

Kobble Creek was re-zoned as an administration area in June 2009,[1] but was formerly part of the Samsonvale District.
