The County of Newcastle is a county (a cadastral division) in the Wide Bay–Burnett region of Queensland, Australia. On 7 March 1901, the Governor issued a proclamation legally dividing Queensland into counties under the Land Act 1897. Its schedule described Newcastle thus:

Bounded on the east by the counties of Mackenzie and Boondooma; on the south by the Main Dividing Range; on the west by the eastern watershed of the Dawson River; on the north by the northern boundaries of the leased parts of Auburn and Hawkwood Runs and the Auburn River from the confluence of Narayen Creek downwards to its junction with the Burnett River.
