Wangaratta Shire

Wangaratta Shire (1867-1994) was proclaimed on 17 September 1867, its area being based on a road district which had existed for four years. It was named the North Ovens shire, which was appropriate because the shire was almost completely north of the Wangaratta borough and it was bisected by the Ovens River. The change of name from North Ovens to Wangaratta occurred on 22 November 1916.
