Mount Jim Crow is a trachyte plug that lies between Rockhampton and Yeppoon, Australia. Standing at approximately 150 m above the surrounding plains (221 m above sea level), Mount Jim Crow affords a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. Mount Wheeler can be seen to the southeast, while many other trachyte formations can be seen to the north and west.

Well covered by trees and scrub, Mount Jim Crow offers a number of hiking trails which range from easy walking to more difficult climbing. The surface consists mostly of broken shale rock. There are several small but sheer cliffs, mostly on the southeastern face, which can be clearly seen from the Capricorn Highway.
