The Shire of Sherwood is a former local government area of Queensland, Australia, located in south-western Brisbane in and around the suburb of Sherwood.

History[edit]

On 11 November 1879, the Yeerongpilly Division was created as one of 74 divisions within Queensland under the Divisional Boards Act 1879. On 16 October 1886, parts of Yeerongpilly Division were excised to create Stephens Division (later Shire of Stephens).[1] On 24 January 1891, further parts of Yeerongpilly Division were excised to create Sherwood Division (later Shire of Sherwood).

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

On 1 October 1925, the Shire of Sherwood was amalgamated into the City of Brisbane.[3]
