A Place to Prosper

Stawell Main St

If you're looking for an exceptional place to do business, the clean and green Northern Grampians Shire in Western Victoria has all the right elements for success.

Our passion for prosperity began more than 150 years ago when gold miners rushed here to find their fortune. Today, we are the location of choice for more than 1,000 dynamic businesses, turning over an annual profit of $1,426 million.

Gold mining is still a major focus, with Victoria's largest commercial gold mine operating in the major township of Stawell.  However agriculture, construction, manufacturing, tourism and retail trade are significant and prosperous industries across the Shire.

The Northern Grampians Shire is home to a large area of the internationally renowned Grampians National Park and attracts over half a million tourists each year.  The Grampians wine region, widely known for the production of Shiraz and sparkling varieties is also an area of keen interest to domestic and international grape grazers.

For investors looking to build on existing key industries, or to pioneer new innovation, the major centres of Stawell, St Arnaud and Halls Gap each offer impressive infrastructure and technology, and a superior choice of affordable industrial and commercial sites.

The economic strengths of the Northern Grampians continually attract significant government investment, positioning it as a regional centre for health and community services, specialist education and allowing us to diversify into cutting-edge industries like renewable energy and niche food production and manufacturing.
