Info for new residents to the Town & District

"I wish I had known................."

Welcome to the Balonne Shire and its rural towns.

Many residents enjoy magnificent water views. Water is the life-blood of our shire.
We use it for recreation, it sustains our communities and agricultural production.


Visitors to St George comment on the beauty of the town, gardens and the riverside walkway.
Many mature flowering trees line the streets. The Bauhinia trees in Victoria Street attract much attention in early spring with their beautiful purple, pink and white flowers. The Jacaranda trees line the streets in mauve with an impressive display in November.

where people still take the time to stop and talk…
