Centenary of Local GovernmentPrint Page
Plaque commemorates the centenary of local government in the District of Tatiara.
The Tatiara country was opened up by European settlers in the 1840s for grazing purposes, with the township of Bordertown established in 1852, slowly expanding as more graziers moved to the area.
After significant growth in the area, the District Council of Tatiara was formed in 1876. In 1884, a neighbouring council was established, the District Council of Wirrega; however this was short lived and in 1888, it was amalgamated into the Tatiara District Council.
