Broadsound Shire

Broadsound Shire, an area of 18,307 sq km, generally 180 km north-west of Rockhampton, was amalgamated with Belyando and Nebo shires in 2008 to form Isaac Regional Council. The administrative centre, St Lawrence, was near the shire's southern coastal boundary. The northern boundary was near Sarina, and inland the shire adjoined Peak Downs and Belyando Shires.
