Buln Buln Shire
Buln Buln Shire (1878-1994) was proclaimed in 1878. Its original size was considerably reduced by the creation of Warragul Shire in 1881 in the east and the creation of Korumburra Shire in 1891 in the south. In 1892 and 1893, a south-western portion was annexed by Cranbourne Shire.
Buln Buln is the name of the survey County, and it is thought that the name derived from an Aboriginal expression describing the lyrebird or place of the lyrebird.
