The Shire of Allora was a Local Government Area north of the regional centre of Warwick in the Darling Downs region of Queensland. The shire, administered from Allora, covered an area of convert|702.0|km2|sqmi|1, and existed as a local government entity from 1869 until 1994, when it was dissolved and amalgamated with City of Warwick, Shire of Rosenthal and Shire of Glengallan to form the Shire of Warwick.

History

The Municipality of Allora came into being on 21 July 1869 under the "Municipal Institutions Act 1864". The surrounding region was incorporated on 11 November 1879 as the Division of Clifton under the "Divisional Boards Act 1879". With the passage of the "Local Authorities Act 1902", Allora became a Town and Clifton a Shire on 31 March 1903. On 23 January 1915, Allora was abolished and a new Shire of Allora created from the southern part of the Shire of Clifton. The Shire's offices were located at 78 Herbert Street, Allora.

On 21 November 1991, the Electoral and Administrative Review Commission, created two years earlier, produced its second report, and recommended that local government boundaries in the Warwick area be rationalised, and that the Shire be merged with the Shires of Glengallan and Rosenthal and the City of Warwick to form a new Shire of Warwick. The "Local Government (Allora, Glengallan, Rosenthal and Warwick) Regulation 1994" was gazetted on 20 May 1994. On 25 June, an election was held for the new council, and on 1 July 1994, Allora passed out of existence.
