Wondai, a rural town, is 25 km north of Kingaroy and 170 km north-west of Brisbane.

Wondai, and more particularly its shire, was taken up as the Mondure pastoral run (1844) and the Boondooma run (1846). The Boondooma homestead site, west of Wondai on the Mundubbera-Durong Road, consists of sandstone and slab buildings dating from 1856, along with barns, sheds and yards. It is a remarkably intact nineteenth century farm complex which is listed on the Australian heritage register and has been brought under the care of the Wondai Shire Council.
