Steeped in a golden history, Central Goldfields Shire lies at the very heart of Victoria.

The main towns of Maryborough, Carisbrook, Dunolly, Talbot and Bealiba are all famous for their significant historical architecture born of the goldmining era of the 1850s.

You’ll also find a welcoming community, pleasant climate, uncongested roads, affordable housing as well as first-class health, education and recreational facilities.

Employment opportunities, like the shire itself, are in an upswing of growth backed by strong investment in health and economic development initiatives.

Only a couple of hours from Melbourne and half that from the regional centres of Ballarat and Bendigo, Central Goldfields Shire may also prove central to your successful move to regional Victoria.

The Central Goldfields Shire looks forward to welcoming you.
