The Belyuen Shire is a local government area in the Northern Territory, Australia near Wagait, across Port Darwin from the city of Darwin. The administrative area is centered on the mostly Indigenous community of Belyuen, known officially as Delissaville prior to 1975.[2]

Belyuen was established as a Community Government Council on 28 August 1992. On 1 July 2008, Coomalie Council became one of the eleven shires in the territory, changed by the Northern Territory Government.
