The Balonne Shire is located in Queensland, about 500km inland from the Queensland capital, Brisbane, and is nestled just above the New South Wales border. Our Shire serves as a bridge between the expanse of the great outback to its west, and the Great Dividing Range and capital city to its east.
Across more than 31,000km2, 4500 residents call one of our seven communities home – St George, Thallon, Dirranbandi, Bollon, Nindigully, Mungindi, and Hebel. One of the unique things about our Shire is that every town is situated beside a river.
Our towns are known for their rich history, friendly locals, bird life, wide open spaces and their relaxed country lifestyle. Our pioneering history shows we are welcoming of all cultures and promote equality for all residents within our shire.
Balonne Shire and our residents welcome people of all backgrounds and recognises the value and richness that cultural diversity brings to our region.
