Agriculture

Blessed with natural abundance from the coast to our volcanic lakes and mounts, it is the fertile soils of Corangamite Shire that underpin agriculture as our largest employer.  

As a key contributor to the regional, state, and national economy the dairy industry is an early embracer of new technology and systems. From farm to markets near and far, dairy draws on compatible skill sets from many industries and may be a perfect fit for you!

Working collaboratively to achieve efficiency, Corangamite Shire is part of the Great South Coast. Our region is renowned for producing high quality dairy, wool, beef, prime lamb, seafood crops and grain. With rising global food demand, agriculture presents a range of exciting and rewarding career opportunities.
