The area around Nanango was settled in 1847.
Gold was discovered in the early 1800's and this resulted in a population boom.
After World War 1, it leveled off, then a 'boom' happened again in the 1970's, with the arrival of the Tarong Power Station.
The main industries in the area are Power production, Coal mining, Agriculture, Beef and Pork production, Dairying and Milk production, Timber growing and milling, small crops, natural Medicine, Art, Craftwork and Tourism.
