Additions for this page
1) The council's website: http://www.prsc.qld.gov.au/
2) The Shire is bounded by the following shires:
Brisbane City (South) Caboolture (North) Esk(West) Redcliffe (East)
3) The council headquarters is in Strathpine.
4) A list of suburbs within the Shire may be a bit superflous, but easy to find.
5) The shire has two of Brisbane's water supplies, Lake Samsonvale (North Pine Dam) and Lake Kurwongbah (unsure spelling)

- done and done. To do now:
- Images! photos, council logo, maps.
- make sure suburb list is exhaustive.
- more information on the council, past mayors etc?

Mayors Lists are hard work, Wikipedia may be the only place some of this stuff ends up. I'll be in Brissy in a couple of weeks and will try to cruise up to Pine Rivers for a look-see.
My interest is that a previous Shire Chairman was an uncle of my wife.

I think it is necessary that Strathpine Should Have its own article. I would be willing to write it, if their are no objections. Nicko6 03:19, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
As a closing admin, I share the sentiment and arguments of the proposal. However, all pages in Category:Local Government Areas of Queensland are at "Foo Shire Council" so IMO they should be all renamed to Foo Shire, Queensland. Thus, a broader incentive is called for. (See WP:RM#Multiple page moves).
Incidentally, similar error was present for long time in my home country, and cleared up only recently: the bureaucratic phrase "skupština opštine" (municipal assembly) got so widespread that ugly phrases like "Territory of Municipal Assembly" became ubiquitous instead of plain vanilla "municipality".

Boundary changes in 1897, 1921 and 1955
It [the shire] underwent significant changes in 1921 and 1955, and on 23 May 1959, the Shire of Pine was renamed Shire of Pine Rivers. It then remained with the same name and boundaries for almost 50 years. Does anyone know what these significant changes were in 1921 and 1955? Kerry (talk) 09:13, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
