History

Fassifern district is named after Fassifern Valley which is a valley within the Scenic Rim Regional Council, in South East Queensland. The area is one of four vegetable-producing areas in southern Queensland.  The valley was discovered by Captain Patrick Logan, a monument commemorates this event.  Early settlers to the Fassifern Valley included John Cameron and his brother-in-law Robert Coulson who arrived on the Darling Downs only to find all the best land already taken up. Cameron named Fassefern after a place in Scotland.  Fassifern district was formed in 2011, when Flinders district was re-organised.  The district closed in 2019.
