AFL Wide Bay
Wide Bay–Burnett is a region in Queensland, located between 170 km and 400 km north of Brisbane. Wide Bay was the name given by explorer James Cook to a coastal indentation as he was sailing past Double Island Point. As the Port of Maryborough developed during the 1800s Wide Bay became well known as ships passed through the area before entering the Great Sandy Strait and the port.
