About Moira Shire Council
Moira Shire is a vibrant and progressive place in which to live, work and invest.
The Moira Advantage
Moira Shire has its location on the majestic Murray River with lifestyle, location and opportunities to maximise The Moira Advantage. In fact, so many people are choosing to call Moira home that it is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Victoria. One of Moira’s major towns, Yarrawonga, was named in the top 10 lifestyle change destinations nationally by The Australian newspaper.
Access to affordable rural and urban housing, good educational facilities, excellent sporting and recreational opportunities, award-winning health services, clean, fresh air and an active and friendly community; it is no surprise to those who live here that the area is experiencing strong residential and commercial growth.
Moira is strategically positioned just a 2.5 hour drive from Melbourne and close to other regional centres such as Shepparton, Wangaratta, Echuca-Moama and Albury-Wodonga.
The area’s warm Mediterranean climate, appealing natural environment and strategic location means Moira is home to agricultural, horticultural, viticultural and tourism operations.
Stretching from Bundalong in the east to Barmah in the west, attractions include wineries, historic homesteads, galleries, craft shops, licensed clubs, water sports, fishing, beaches, forests, lakes, rivers and wetlands.
This all adds up to what the locals call "The Moira Advantage".
