WBBROC works in a collaborative way, wherever it can, to achieve its goals.  We work closely with key stakeholders and form alliances where necessary.  Some of the organisations we work closely with include:

WBBROC – 20 years: 1999-2019

2019 marked a 20-year milestone for WBBROC.  The initial meeting of 23 Wide Bay Burnett Councils was held on 5 February 1999, with Cr Bill Trevor (Isis Shire) acting as Chair. 

Local government amalgamations in 2007 reduced the number of Wide Bay Burnett Councils to 6 and the collaboration between these Councils has gone from strength to strength. 

Achievements over the years include the collaboration on telecommunications blackspots with all 6 Councils combining to engage an independent consultant to collect data and develop a detailed report.  The Wide Bay Burnett region received 17% of federal black spot funding in Queensland – close to twice as much as it should have received, due to this collaboration.
