The Wagait Shire, before 1 July 2008 Cox Peninsula Community Government Council, is a local government area in the Northern Territory. The council was established 28 April 1995. It is located west of Darwin, Northern Territory, as a 15 minute ferry ride, or a 138 km Drive on fully sealed roads. The councils derived its previous name from the Cox Peninsula. It was named after Matthew Dillon Cox who was regarded as the Territory's first pastoralist who applied for a lease over the peninsula in 1869, just after the establishment of Darwin. The current name is derived from the name of the township located near Wagait Beach.
