The Victoria Plains Shire Council commissioned a local history to celebrate their centenary of local government. The Victoria Plains traces the early exploration of the area in 1836 and its development into a prosperous farming and pastoral region. In 1871, when local government was created, the boundaries of the district extended from the Indian Ocean in the west to the South Australian border in the east, and from Carnamah in the north to Bolgart in the south.
