Mitchell Shire has a wealth of attractions for visitors and residents



Visit, Discover, Explore

Mitchell Shire offers a variety of unique visitor experiences. Nestled in the heart of Victoria, with scenic beauty to inspire, fresh air to revitalise, and welcoming locals to encourage visitors. The experience begins only 30 kilometres from Melbourne.

From Seymour in the Shire’s north, the historic township of Kilmore and Mitchell’s fast growing southern townships, there is always something to suit your pace and interests.

The Goulburn River’s fertile plains support flourishing market gardens, farms, orchards and vineyards. Fresh, local produce features on café, pub and restaurant menus. With cosy firesides indoors, and shaded gardens outside, dining venues are tempting in every season.

The surrounding mountain ranges and rolling hills provide opportunities for rock-climbing, camping and hiking; or simply magical driving tours. Festivals, galleries and museums complete your experience.
