There’s the extraordinary food and the wine, the extensive Rail Trails, the spectacular seasons (especially autumn). And there’s Australia's most significant collection of historic towns.

But what makes Indigo Shire especially unique are the winding roads and little discoveries you make at the end of them. The unspoilt environment, the rivers and mountains, the joyous festivals, the unique community spirit, and dynamic, creative and discerning people.

Employment in farming industries is abundant, including beef, sheep, dairy, horticulture and viticulture, and there’s always a call for the provision of services, including tourism, retail, health and education.

Beechworth, Chiltern, Rutherglen or Yackandandah. Wherever you end up, you’ll be proud of the Indigo Shire difference, too.
