Belyando Shire

Belyando Shire, an area of 30,281 sq km, and generally 400 km north-west of Rockhampton, was amalgamated with Broadsound and Nebo Shire Councils in 2008 to form Isaac Regional Council. Its western sector included the Drummond Range, scrubby woodlands and some undulating parts with grasslands suitable for grazing. The more productive eastern sector has better grazing land, merging with the Peak Downs district, and the former mining towns of Clermont and Copperfield (defunct) and the Blair Athol and Moranbah/Goonyella coal fields.
