Geography

Part of the eastern and southern boundary of Boodua follows Oakey Creek, a tributary of the Condamine River. The predominate land use is agriculture.

History

The name originates from a railway station on the Haden railway line and is a native word for a species of hawk.

The Darling Downs Co-operative Dairy Association operated a cheese factory at Boodua between 1926 and 1950. The Boodua State School was open between 1908 and 1962. The area was once part of the Shire of Rosalie until it was merged into the Toowoomba Region in 2008.
