Map of Mt Britton, QLD 4742

Mount Britton is a historical township in Nebo Shire, Queensland, Australia. The township began in 1881 with the discovery of a gold field, and at its height had a population of 1500 inhabitants. Mount Britten Post Office opened on 1 June 1881 and closed in 1912.

At the 2006 census, Mount Britton and the surrounding area had a population of 255.

When alluvial and shallow reef gold diminished by the late 1880s, the town experienced a decline and was eventually abandoned. It currently exists as a historical site.

Historical aspects of Mount Britton are recorded in Lyall Ford's book Below These Mountains: The Adventures of John Henry Mills Pioneer Photographer and Gold Miner.
