Maffra Shire

Maffra Shire (1875-1994), east Gippsland, was north of Sale and generally 160 km east of central Melbourne. It was named after the town of Maffra which was in the shire’s south-east corner. It appears that the town was named after a ‘Mafra’ sheep fold on Lachlan Macalister’s Boisdale pastoral run (1840-50).
