History

In January 1995, the Shire of Kaniva and parts of the Shires of Kowree, Arapiles and Glenelg were amalgamated by the Victorian Government to form West Wimmera Shire Council. The main townships are Edenhope and Kaniva with smaller rural areas including Harrow, Goroke, Serviceton, Dergholm, Apsley just to name a few. The Shire is large in area however small in population. The Map below shows the new shire as of January 1995.
