Wongawallan is mountainous terrain with most farming and residential development occurring the creek valleys. The hilltops are largely undeveloped.

Mount Wongawallan is a mountain in the north-east of the locality (27°52′02″S 153°15′18″E / 27.8672°S 153.255°E / -27.8672; 153.255 (Mount Wongawallan)) rising to 378 metres (1,240 ft) above sea level.

The area was originally named Mount Goulburn after Henry Goulburn by surveyor Dixon. However, later it was renamed Wongawallan, believed to be an Aboriginal word where wonga means pigeon and walla means water.

However, it has been claimed that it was named after an Aboriginal man nicknamed "Peter" who killed John Wilkinson, a settler, at Wongawallan Creek in 1876., but contemporaneous newspaper reports of the death of Wilkinson only refer to the Aboriginal man as "Peter".

In the 2011 census, Wongawallan had a population of 1,103 people.
