Lower Burnett and Kolan Localities

West of Bundaberg, around the lower reaches of the Burnett and Kolan Rivers, there are several localities with intensive horticulture, orcharding and cane-growing. One or two close to Bundaberg have rural/residential acreages. The farms benefit from the Fred Haigh dam, Lake Monduran (1974) on the Kolan River, north-west of Gin Gin. Haigh was Queensland Irrigation Commissioner 1955-74. The localities are described in alphabetical order, and statistical information is in a concluding table.
