Eacham Shire

Eacham Shire, an area of 1127 sq km on the Atherton Tableland, and generally 60 km south-west of Cairns, was amalgamated with three other shires in 2008 to form Tablelands Regional Council. It was named after the crater lake of the same name, Eacham being similar in sound to an Aboriginal expression thought to describe the lake.
