Our Region, Our Council
About our Council
Our region covers 19,700 square kilometres of diverse Australian countryside, shared amongst six main townships: Biggenden, Eidsvold, Gayndah, Monto, Mt Perry, Mundubbera, and an additional 25 villages and farming catchments.
We have a long and proud history of development, prosperity, and resilience. With readiness we also face challenges including distance, drought, flood, and connectivity.
We administer $868 million in assets, including six libraries and customer service centres, five swimming pools, as well as various major infrastructure and equipment. We maintain a network of 829 kilometres of sealed and 3318 kilometres of unsealed roads within the region.
