The Shire of Tambellup was a local government area in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, about 40 kilometres (25 mi) south of Katanning and about 330 kilometres (205 mi) south-southeast of the state capital, Perth. The Shire covered an area of 1,436 square kilometres (554 sq mi), and its seat of government was the town of Tambellup.
The Tambellup Road Board was gazetted in 1905. On 1 July 1961, it became a shire council following changes to the Local Government Act. On 1 July 2008, after 10 months of planning and preparation, it merged with the neighbouring Shire of Broomehill to form the Shire of Broomehill-Tambellup.
The shire was divided into 3 wards:
- Stirling Ward (3 councillors)
