Booringa Shire

Booringa Shire, an area of 27,793 sq km, was generally 500 km north-west of Brisbane. Its northern boundary lies along the approaches to the Carnarvon National Park from where the Maranoa River rises. The river flows southwards through the shire, passing by the administrative centre, Mitchell. In 2008 Booringa Shire was amalgamated into the Maranoa Regional Council.
