Jacobs Well

Jacobs Well, a small town on Moreton Bay opposite Kangaroo Island, is 48 km south-east of central Brisbane. The origin of the name is obscure, possibly from the Biblical Jacob or the son of a pioneer, Johann Gross, who settled in the Pimpama district.

Jacobs Well is in the Woongoolba district, which is predominately sugar-growing. The Rocky Point sugar mill (1879) is near Woongoolba, which has the district's primary school.
