It is part of the D'Aguilar Range which includes other mountains such as Mount Pleasant, Mount Glorious and Mount Mee. The town of Mount Nebo is named after the mountain on which it is located. The mountain is the source of Enoggera Creek.


Settlement began in 1919 with the subdivision of the Highlands Estate into smaller blocks for soldiers returning from World War I.[1] For a number of years the community belonged to the Shire of Esk, but between 1932 and 1936 a redrawing of the boundaries brought Mount Nebo into the Shire of Pine Rivers.[1] The 2008 amalgamation of local councils means it now falls within the Moreton Bay Region.
