Part of the Mirab Gojjam Zone, Wemberma is bordered on the south by the Abay River which separates it from the Oromia Region and Benishangul-Gumuz Region, on the north by the Agew Awi Zone, and on the east by Bure. The administrative center of Wemberma is Shendi. Wemberma was part of former Bure Wemberma woreda.
