Isisford and Isisford Shire

Isisford is a rural town and formerly a shire in Queensland's central west. Situated on the Barcoo River, the town is 100 km south-west of Longreach and 1160 km north-west of Brisbane. The shire, of which the town was the administrative centre, covered an area of 10501 sq km and was proclaimed on 28 December 1907, the result of a partitioning of the Barcoo Shire.
