The Shire of Tammin is a local government area in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia. Its seat of government is the town of Tammin, about 80 kilometres (50 mi) west of Merredin and about 180 kilometres (112 mi) east of Perth, the state capital.
Originally the area was governed by the Meckering Road Board (now the neighbouring Shire of Cunderdin). In 1948, the Tammin Road District was gazetted, and on 1 July 1961, it became a shire under the Local Government Act 1960.
The Shire has never had wards, and all six councillors sit at large. The Shire President is elected from amongst the councillors.
