The Ithaca Division is a former local government area of Queensland, Australia, located in north-western Brisbane.

History[edit]

The Ithaca Division was one of the original divisions created on 11 November 1879 under the Divisional Boards Act of 1879 with a population of 3369,[1] it comprised 3 subdivisions.

By 1886, the residents of subdivision 1 were petitioning to separate and become the Shire of Windsor,[2] resulting in the establishment of the Shire of Windsor on 11 Feb 1887.[3]

Meanwhile, the residents of subdivision 2 were petitioning to separate and become the Shire of Ithaca,[4] resulting in the creation of the Shire of Ithaca on 18 Aug 1887.[5]

The now much depleted Ithaca Division then requested to be renamed the Enoggera Division[6] and this occurred on 28 Mar 1888.[7]

The Local Authorities Act 1902 replaced divisions with shires and towns; as a result, on 31 Mar 1903, the Enoggera Division became the Shire of Enoggera.[7][8]

On 1 October 1925, the shire was amalgamated into the current City of Brisbane,[8] together with all the areas that had been previously separated from it.
