|Namesake||Dundas and Follett|
The district of Dundas and Follett was one of the initial districts created in the first Victorian Legislative Assembly, 1856. It was renamed Dundas from 1859 as a result of the Electoral Act (of December 1858) although it covered the same area as Dundas and Follett previously.
Later its borders were re-arranged somewhat and included the sub-divisions of Harrow, Casterton, Hamilton, Branxholme, Penshurst and Mortlake.
