Chinchilla Shire

Chinchilla Shire, an area of 8701 sq km, and generally 280 km north-west of Brisbane was amalgamated in 2008 with Dalby Town Council, three other shires and part of Tambo Shire to form Dalby Regional Council. It was situated on the edge of the western Darling Downs which blend into an extensive State forest in the north of the shire.
