Mount Elliot was formed in 2018 [1].  Its first District Commissioner was Jenny Staddon. 

Districts within Kennedy Region’s three districts were named after mountains, by the Region Commissioner Andrew Houghton who said that “As scouts are always aiming high, mountains can also be climbed on, abseiled down, bushwalked, mountain biked, kayaked and canoed, flown around and mountains are essentially adventurous.  The mountain peaks overlook the region and have history both in our time and before like scouts, will be around long after we are gone” [2].

The district is named after Mount Elliott, which is named after Gilbert Eliot, the Member of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland for Wide Bay in the 1st Queensland Parliament in 1860.
