Brush Creek is a locality in the Goondiwindi Region, Queensland, Australia.[1]

History

The locality was named after a pastoral run held in the early 1850s by Thomas Collins, which in turn was believed to be named for the creek flowing through the run.[1]

Brush Creek was opened for selection on 17 April 1877; 21 square miles (54 km2) were available.[2]
