The origins of the council date back to the Waipawa County Council, established in 1876.[2]

Patangata County Council split off in 1885. Waipukurau County Council, Waipukurau Borough Council, Patangata County Council, Woodville County Council, Dannevirke County Council, and Waipawa Borough Council split off in 1908.[1][3]

Waipukurau County Council merged with Patangata County Council in 1974 and Waipukurau Borough Council in 1977 to form Waipukurau District Council.[4]

The other councils merged in 1978, to form Waipawa District Council.[4]

Waipukurau District Council and Waipawa District Council merged in 1989, to create the modern council.[4]
