Unique, untouched beauty

Rolling green hills, golden fields of canola and wheat, rugged bush landscapes and rocky plains. From historic gold mining towns to lush river valleys, the shire is a treat for the senses.

Alongside the treats of nature are the man-made variety, including boutique cool-climate wines and delicious fresh produce. Then there are the historical treats, the charming legacy of a golden past in towns such as Bannockburn, Gheringhap, Lethbridge, Linton, Berringa, Teesdale, Rokewood and Meredith.

And of course there’s the every day treat of living in a progressive, ideally-located municipality, with diverse local employment opportunities, fine health and education choices, and great access to city services—all while enjoying an invigorating country lifestyle.

Come and experience the breathtaking beauty and relaxed lifestyle of Golden Plains Shire for yourself. You’ll be glad you did.

One of the biggest concerns of anyone considering a move to regional Victoria is that of employment. Will there be the type of employment you’re after, and will there be enough of it? You’re definitely not alone in asking these questions.
Finding and then moving into a new home is always an exciting process. Sure, it has its headaches along the way, but there’s nothing quite like the thrill of that first night in a new house. And when the new house happens to be in a whole new region, the thrill only intensifies. Homes in Linton are an average price of $222,500 and in Bannockburn homes are an average of $395,000.
You may not be aware that regional Victoria is home to some of the best schools in the state. True, you won’t find the concentration of options that you have in Melbourne, but you’ll still find plenty of quality choice across all levels of schooling.
