Durong is located half way between Dalby and Munduberra, and has a corner store, open 7am to 7pm.
About 90km north-west of Kingaroy and the same distance north-east of Chinchilla, Durong South is a little town in the middle of what is primarily a cattle grazing region.
The locals are in the process of reclaiming some of their history by restoring as a museum the impressive Boondooma Homestead, which was the domestic and social heart of a huge cattle station.
Nearby Boondoomba Dam, heavily stocked with native fish, is a popular spot for fishing, swimming and boating. The dam is fed by the Boyne River which, an hour’s drive to the north of Durong, merges with the Auburn and Burnett rivers on the southern fringes of Mundubbera.
