Mitchell Shire offers significant opportunities for both the industrial and commercial sectors through its location along the Hume Highway, and its proximity to primary produce and metropolitan Melbourne markets.
Located in the heart of Victoria, Mitchell Shire is easily accessible to other key Victorian regional centres including Bendigo and Shepparton and the North East via a comprehensive network of major roads and the Melbourne to Sydney rail line.
Close to metropolitan Melbourne but offering a relaxed semi-rural lifestyle, Mitchell Shire is increasingly becoming Victoria's number one place to live, work and invest.
Mitchell Shire offers numerous opportunities for investment and to help identify these opportunities, our Economic Development Unit can provide information and advice on statistics, demographics, land availability and much more.
