Chinchilla is a town in the Darling Downs region of Queensland approximately 300 kilometres west-northwest of Brisbane. It is the commercial centre for the Chinchilla Shire and has a thriving economy based on surrounding graziers and grain growers.

Agriculture is the mainstay of the community, with beef and pork production, wool growing, and horticulture traditionally underwriting the local economy. However, with the recent resources boom, the Kogan Creek Power Station (and other coal and gas projects) have begun to inject welcome cash into the town and Chinchilla is experiencing mass growth and development. House prices in Chinchilla have boomed as a result of the need to house new workers. The Chinchilla shire produces a quarter of Australia’s rockmelons, watermelons and honeydews. Chinchilla is known as the 'Melon Capital of Australia', and plays host to a Melon Festival every second year.
