Pakenham Shire

Pakenham Shire (1973-94), an area of 874 sq km in west Gippsland, was created on 1 October 1973 by severance from Berwick Shire. Berwick Shire’s offices were in Pakenham, having been moved to there in 1912.

From north to south the shire extended from north of Gembrook to the middle of the former Koo Wee Rup Swamp. From west to east it extended from Beaconsfield to the Bunyip River.
