Shire of Nebo is a Local Government Area in north Queensland, Australia. The shire contains the towns of Coppabella, Glenden and the administrative centre, Nebo.

Traditionally a rural shire, producing beef, sugar, sorghum and other grains, coal mining is now a major employer, with eight coal mines in the shire and capacity for a further five.[1] The area now known as Nebo Shire was first explored by Europeans when Ludwig Leichhardt came in 1845[2].
