The Town of Kyabram was a local government area in the Goulburn Valley region, about 200 kilometres (124 mi) north of Melbourne, the state capital of Victoria, Australia, and 35 kilometres (22 mi) west of Shepparton. The town covered an area of 25.85 square kilometres (10.0 sq mi), and existed from 1954 until 1994.


Main article: Shire of Rodney

The town was originally on the western edge of the Shire of Rodney, but on 1 April 1954, it was severed and became a borough. On 4 July 1973, Kyabram became a town. The town annexed 7.31 square kilometres (2.82 sq mi) of land from the Shire of Rodney on 1 October 1991.[2]

On 18 November 1994, the Town of Kyabram was abolished, and, along with the City of Echuca and the Shires of Deakin, Rochester and Waranga, and a number of neighbouring districts, was merged into the newly created Shire of Campaspe.[3]


The Town of Kyabram was not divided into wards, and its nine councillors represented the entire town.
