Welcome to the Winton page.

Welcome to the Winton page.


The Winton Branch was formed on 19 October 1972, following a public meeting held in the Winton Shire Hall. The inaugural office-bearers were President Noel Kennedy (Castle Hill), Secretary Kay Nicholson (Wongan) and Treasurer Peter Knowles (Namarva).
The Branch has a membership of 42 families, from the town and across the Shire. Members’ children from pre-school onwards are involved in the Longreach School of Distance Education, Winton State School and St. Patrick’s School, as well as boarding schools and various tertiary institutions.
Winton Shire previously had several small schools at Corfield, Mahrigong, Mt. Campbell and Clio, as well as two bus runs into Winton, and student hostels from 1953 until 1989. However, a declining rural population has meant the end of these services.
Winton Branch aims to meet on a regular basis and send delegates to State and Federal Conferences.

Winton Branch has been represented on State Council by:
• Bruce Collins from 1983 – 1990
• Helen Collins from 1983 –1990
