North Burnett Region

The North Burnett Region is a Local Government Area in the Wide Bay - Burnett Region of Queensland, approximately 300 kilometres north-west of Brisbane, the state capital. The LGA is sparsely populated with its estimated population of 10,805 residents over a 19,708-sqaure-kilometre area. Its main industries include agriculture, food production, horticulture, mining, and timber production.

Following recommendations by the Local Government Reform Commission in July 2007, the old Shires of Biggenden, Eidsvold, Gayndah, Monto, Mundubbera, and Perry merged in March 2008 to form the new North Burnett Region. The LGA takes its name from the Burnett River, which was named in honour of James Charles Burnett, who discovered it in 1847.

With the town of Gayndah as its Council Seat, the North Burnett Region is represented n the Legislative Assembly of Queensland by the Electoral District of Callide, and by the Federal Divisions of Flynn and Hinkler in the Australian House of Representatives. It is bordered by the LGAs of Banana, Bundaberg, Fraser Coast, Gladstone, Gympie, South Burnett, and Western Downs. Its other localities are Abercorn, Ban Ban Springs, Biggenden, Binjour, Boynewood, Byrnestown, Ceratodus, Coalstoun Lakes, Dallarnil, Degilbo, Didcot, Eidsvold, Gooroolba, Ideraway, Kalpowar, Monogorilby, Monto, Moonford, Mount Perry, Mulgildie, Mundowran, Mundubbera, Mungungo, Philpott, Wetheron, and Wuruma Dam.

The North Burnett Region features a number of cultural, historical, and natural attractions for residents and visitors alike to enjoy. Popular sites within the Local Government Area include the Auburn River National Park, Cania Gorge National Park, Claude Wharton Weir, Gayndah's Big Orange, Gayndah Museum and Information Centre, Kirar Weir, Lake Cania, Mount Walsh National Park, Woowoonga National Park, and Wuruma Dam.
