Wowan, a rural town, is 70 km south-west of Rockhampton. The earliest place of European settlement in the Wowan district was Dundee (now Deeford), on the Dee River which flows through Mount Morgan. Dundee is about five km south-east of Wowan. It opened a local school in 1900 and had a slab-built hotel.
