History

In 1871, the Beverley Road Board (later Shire Council) was created to manage a territory with immense boundaries, taking in land all the way east to Eucla on the South Australian border. Its scope was so broad that from 1892 to 1913, the town of Beverley had its own municipal council operating separately from the Road Board. However, over the years, each of the major towns were granted their own road boards, and by 1923 the present boundaries were established. In 1961, the Road Board was renamed to the Beverley Shire Council.
