The Central Highlands Regional Council (CHRC) was created on March 15, 2008, following the amalgamation of the former Shires of Bauhinia, Duaringa, Emerald and Peak Downs.
CHRC has in excess of $800 million in assets and maintains 4632 kilometres of roads, and numerous parks and gardens, including the glorious Botanical Gardens in Emerald, and the new Linear Parkland in Capella.
Other services provided by Council include youth services, art spaces, cultural and community development, animal rescue and management, seniors and youth housing, water and sewerage, waste collection, and more recently, kerbside recycling.
