Kyneton Shire

Kyneton Shire (1865-1995), an area of 725 sq km, was proclaimed in 1865. It was situated between the Macedon Ranges and the Castlemaine-Taradale gold fields and bisected by the Melbourne to Bendigo railway line (1862) and the Calder Highway. Kyneton, positioned on the highway and the Campaspe River, was the shire’s administrative centre. Malmsbury borough council, 10 km north-west of Kyneton, was united with the shire in 1915.
