A breath of fresh air
From the Macedon Ranges in the south to the Murray River in the north, Loddon Campaspe brims with the best of natural and man-made attractions. The waterways, bushland and goldfields within and surrounding its heritage towns are complemented by the acclaimed restaurants and cellar doors. This pocket of Victoria is difficult to resist.
This is physically Victoria’s geographic heart, and the region’s natural and man-made offerings are also central to its growth and employment. Retail, manufacturing, agriculture, education, health care, tourism and professional services provide career prospects for all.
The Victorian Government is ensuring Loddon Campaspe communities continue to be great places to live work and invest, by delivering a range of improvements to public transport, country roads, tourism infrastructure and health facilities, and through initiatives such as Free TAFE for priority courses.
The 2019-20 Budget provides further tax relief for rural and regional businesses, with the regional payroll tax rate to be reduced to 25 per cent of the metropolitan rate by 2022-23.
Locals living in the Loddon Campaspe will also benefit from $16.7 million for the Twin Rivers School project in Echuca and $166 million for the new Bendigo Law Courts. We’re also investing $50 million to deliver better local train services, including the reestablishment of the station at Harcourt and funding for new stations at Goornong, Raywood and Huntly.
