The Shire of Narrogin is a local government area in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, about 190 kilometres (118 mi) south-east of the state capital, Perth. Curiously, the town of Narrogin serves as the Shire's seat of government, despite the fact that it is not part of the Shire itself. The Shire covers an area of 1,619 square kilometres (625 sq mi) and has a population of 846 (ABS 2001).

History

In 1892, the Narrogin Road District came into being. On 1 July 1961, it became a Shire under the Local Government Act 1960.[2] In 1999 and 2004, proposals to merge the Shire with the Town of Narrogin were defeated at referendum.[3]

Wards

The shire had four wards until the 2005 election, but they have since been abolished. Seven councillors now sit at large.
