Helping to lead the way in sustainable communities

Mount Alexander Shire Council is working to create a community that is sustainable now and into the future. With a strong national reputation for environmental commitments, along with the community’s extensive creative artistic talents, our commitment to sustainability and innovative community building is strong.

Castlemaine is a friendly and welcoming town, a vibrant place that celebrates individuality and a strong sense of community. It is a place where artists flourish, where gold rush heritage is treasured, and where leading-edge initiatives in environmental sustainability are championed.

We would love to share all of this with you.
