From pure to pristine
If unspoilt nature and some of Australia’s most pristine landscapes appeal, Towong Shire is for you.
Situated in far north-east Victoria, Towong Shire is home to the towns of Corryong and Tallangatta. It’s a prized escape for hikers and campers, who enjoy the sense of freedom, the crystal clear mountain waters, and the meandering High Country Rail Trail. The area is most renowned, though, as The Man From Snowy River country, a place where equine and agricultural living are still important to the local identity and economy.
Towong Shire’s agricultural sector creates clean and green grain, meat and fibre product, with a particular specialty in dairy farming. It’s also the major employer, while supporting a host of important satellite businesses.
For a chance to live and work in authentically pristine and indeed legendary country surrounds, a visit to Towong Shire isn’t just advised, it’s essential.
