Barolin Shire

Barolin Shire (1879-1917) was immediately east of Bundaberg. It was named in 1862 after the Barolin Plain, an area between Burnett Heads and Elliott River. It is thought that the name derived from an Aboriginal word denoting kangaroo. The Barolin sugar estate was about 12 km east of Bundaberg.
