Witta was first settled around 1887 by German immigrant families. They called it Teutoberg (also spelled Teutoburg), possibly referring to the Teutoburg Forest area in Germany. The town was renamed in 1916 during World War 1 due to anti-German sentiment. The name Witta is a corruption of the word ''wetya'' meaning dingo in the Kabi language. Maleny Provisional School opened on 1 October 1892 with the first enrolments on 3 October 1892. It was renamed Teutoberg Provisional School in 1893. It became Teutoberg State School in 1909. It became Witta State School in 1926. The school closed on 23 August 1974. A reserve for a School of Arts was gazetted in 1907. The School of Arts was opened on 7 October 1908 by Harry Frederick Walker, Member of the Queensland Legislative Assembly for Wide Bay.



Witta is located within the Blackall Ranges. The lower land is mostly cleared for residential and farming purposes. The higher land is largely undeveloped natural bushland.
