Located in northwest Victoria, it shares borders with New South Wales and South Australia, which makes it a strategically important regional service centre for three states.
Much of Australia’s fruit, vegetable, nut and cereal crops are grown in the region, tourism and hospitality thrives, and many excellent opportunities are coming from emerging industry development including renewables.
