History

Strathfieldsaye was first incorporated as a district on 20 August 1861, and became a shire on 17 September 1866.cite book|title=Victorian Municipal Directory|year=1992|publisher=Arnall & Jackson|location=Brunswick|pages=843-844 Accessed at State Library of Victoria, La Trobe Reading Room.]

On 7 April 1994, the Shire was abolished—one of the first to disappear under the Kennett Liberal government's statewide local government restructuring program—and merged with the City of Bendigo, the Borough of Eaglehawk, the Shire of Huntly and the Rural City of Marong to form the City of Greater Bendigo.
