Waratah-Wynyard is a local government area of Tasmania, Australia and is governed by the Waratah-Wynyard Council. It covers the areas along the coastline from the Cam River at Somerset, to Wynyard, and then Sisters Beach, and extends inland to encompass the mining towns of Waratah and Savage River.
The Wynyard Council was originally called the 'Municipality of Table Cape' and was renamed to Wynyard Municipal Council in 1945. The Waratah-Wynyard Council formed after the amalgamation of the Waratah and Wynyard municipalities in 1993. There had been suggestion of renaming the council to Table Cape, which was the former name of the Wynyard council, but this move failed at the ballot box.
The current mayor is Robert 'Robby' Walsh and the current Deputy Mayor is Mary Duniam. Other sitting Councillors are Maureen Bradley, Gary Bramich, Darren Fairbrother, Alwyn Friedersdorff, Kevin Hyland and Stephen Wright. All Councillors will be up for re-election in 2018.
