Thulimbah is a town in the Southern Downs region of Queensland, Australia. The town is located on the New England Highway and in the Southern Downs Region local government area, 206 kilometres (128 mi) from the state capital, Brisbane. At the 2006 census, Thulimbah and the surrounding area had a population of 534.
Thulimba State School opened 29 September 1914.
There was originally another district in Queensland called Thulimbah, which was a source of confusion to many people. Eventually the problem was resolved in 1916 by renaming the other district Barney View (due to its location beside Mount Barney).
Thulimba is a fruit-growing area, including apples, pears, cherries and grapes for both table and wine-making. There are a number of wineries, many with cellar door outlets in the area. Other local food producers also offer tastings, sales and cafe menus.
