Wattamondara Station Opening


The Wattamondara Rural Fire Service Brigade station was officially opened on Saturday the 7th of April.

The Wattamondara Brigade was formed during the late 1950’s by the then, Waugoola Shire Council, when the local farming community began to band together to combat fires being ignited by natural and agricultural causes.
