Dundas Shire

Dundas Shire (1863-1994) was created on 8 September 1863, with Hamilton as its administrative centre. The Dundas Shire was one of the early local government bodies in the western district of Victoria. The shire's name derived from the Dundas group of hills which were named by the New South Wales Surveyor-General, Thomas Mitchell, on his Australia Felix expedition (1836), after the British Army General Sir David Dundas.
