Lawloit Shire

Lawloit Shire (1891-1939) in north-western Victoria was proclaimed on 25 May 1891, by severance of the west riding of Lowan shire. Until then Lowan shire extended from Nhill to the South Australian border. The railway line was extended to the border in 1887, and the resulting selection of farmlands led to the population near the border needing their own local government body.
