Mitchell is a town in the Western Downs district of South West Queensland, Australia. It is on the Warrego Highway, 587 kilometres west of Brisbane and 176 kilometres east of Charleville. At the 2006 census, Mitchell had a population of 944.
The Warrego Highway passes through town to form the main street, Cambridge Street. The Maranoa River flows around the northern and eastern sides of the town before eventually flowing into the Balonne River. Before the invasion of Europeans, the Maranoa region was occupied by the Mandandanji Aboriginal people. Based on archeological excavations in the Mount Moffatt area, it has been deduced that the Aboriginals had lived there for around 19,500 years.
