The Shire of Kellerberrin is a local government area in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, about 60 kilometres (37 mi) west of Merredin and about 200 kilometres (124 mi) east of Perth, the state capital.

On 24 July 1908, the Kellerberrin Road District was created, and included large parts of what is now Tammin, Wyalkatchem and Trayning. On 1 July 1961, it became the Shire of Kellerberrin after the Local Government Act 1960 was enacted.
