Quilpie Shire was established under the "Local Authorities Act 1902" on 17 Jul 1930 from parts of Adavale, Barcoo, Bulloo, Murweh and Paroo Shires.

Local Government Councils under the “Local Government Act 1993” and through local laws: promote economic development; own and manage public infrastructure including roads and public works, sewerage, and water storage and distribution; regulate activities which affect the environment including air, noise and water quality, land use and waste disposal, pests and noxious weeds, and building control; provide community services including recreational and cultural facilities and public health services.

Councils generate revenue from rates, service charges, grants and subsidies from state and federal governments, and loans for major projects.

The Quilpie Shire is undivided and the Council is comprised of 5 councillors including the mayor.
