A strong local economy means more local jobs, more local investment and contributes significantly to a thriving local community.

Campaspe Shire Council is fortunate to enjoy diverse economic opportunities across several industries, including agriculture and tourism. Through its Economic Development team, council supports local businesses and producers and takes a proactive approach to attract and retain businesses.
