The ACT Division, formed in 1935, was commanded by Patricia Tillyard as divisional commissioner until 1943. Region 14 (Australian Capital Territory and the Southern Tablelands) was formed in June 1968 and divided in 1975 into three autonomous zones which work through region headquarters to New South Wales headquarters.
