In October 1920, the Corryong Riding and part of the Murray Riding split away to form the Shire of Upper Murray. On 8 March 1874, the shire was renamed Tallangatta.On 18 November 1994, the Shire was abolished, and merged with the Shire of Upper Murray into the Shire of Towong—hence restoring the original pre-1920 entity.
