Council History

The first local government body to be responsible for the present Shire’s area was the Beverley Road District in 1892.This was followed by the Greenhills Road District in 1909, Avon Road District 1913, Quairading Road Board 1922 and then finally the Quairading Shire Council was formed in 1960.

Quairading has had nine Shire Presidents in the time since 1960 and also nine Shire Clerks now referred to as Chief Executive Officers.

The current Shire of Quairading crest, featuring the image of a natural wood sculpture, entitled ‘Peace’, by then local artist, Ian Wills, and incorporating the flower Banksia Cuneata, a species originally found only in the Quairading area, was adopted in 1985.
