With the passage of the Local Authorities Act 1902, Isis Division became the Shire of Isis on 31 March 1903.[2]

On 15 March 2008, under the Local Government (Reform Implementation) Act 2007 passed by the Parliament of Queensland on 10 August 2007, the Shire of Isis merged with the City of Bundaberg and the Shires of Burnett and Kolan to form the Bundaberg Region.[2][3]
