Burrum Shire

Burrum Shire began as a local government division in 1880, partly enclosing Maryborough on its northern side. With an area of 1500 sq miles, the division included Urangan and Pialba, and extended westwards to Biggenden and Degilbo. Severances were made for Biggenden and Isis Shires, and in 1905 the remaining part of the Burrum division was constituted as Pialba Shire.
