Supporting the growing needs of local community.


Preserving our cultural heritage, imagery, art and environment are important steps in understanding our past and the unique ethnic diversity within our community that shapes our future.

Promoting events, artistic endeavours and tourism within our region helps increase public awareness and employment opportunities for communities in the Wimmera-Mallee.

Protecting our communities also extends to our environment, culture, infrastructure and available job skills within our region and underpins the welfare of our community.

Supporting training programs, education, equality, health, welfare and cultural diveristy ensures our communities can continue to nurture our vibrant regional townships well into the future.
