History[edit]

On 16 December 1908, a small part of Shire of Woothakata was transferred to the Shire of Walsh, which was then split with one part being proclaimed the new Shire of Chillagoe, based at Chillagoe.[1][2]

On 25 June 1932, the Shires of Chillagoe and Walsh were merged back into the Shire of Woothakata,[3][4] which was renamed the Shire of Mareeba on 20 December 1947.[5][6][7]
