Wondai Shire

Wondai Shire, an area of 3577 sq km, generally 200 km north-west of Brisbane was amalgamated with Kingaroy, Murgon and Nanango Shires in 2008 to form South Burnett Regional Council. It was named after the Wondai township in the former shire's eastern sector where the Murgon to Kingaroy railway line is situated.
