Wambo Shire

Wambo Shire on the western Darling Downs entirely surrounded the town of Dalby. Its shire offices were in Dalby, but its towns included Bell, Jandowae and Warra. As the Shire's principal town, Jandowae is the site of the Shire's recently built community and cultural centre. In 2008 Wambo Shire was amalgamated with Chinchilla Shire, Dalby Town and Murilla, Tara and the southern third of Taroom Shires to form Dalby Regional Council.
