Old Shire Offices

This simple building of regional architectural significance, was designed by J M Anderson and built by William Deveraux Harburt in 1892.

The building was used as the municipal offices and council chambers for the former City of Doncaster and Templestowe until 1957.

The building was renovated for the Doncaster Templestowe Artists Society Inc in 1987 and re-opened as an art studio/gallery in 1988. It forms part of a group of buildings comprising the Church of Christ and Doncaster Primary School.
