Municipality profile

Corangamite Shire is located in Victoria’s south west. The Shire extends from the 12 Apostles on the coast near Port Campbell and Princetown to Skipton in the north. The eastern boundary is Lake Corangamite and the western border is near Garvoc. The shire's economic base is provided through agriculture and some value-adding manufacturing. Corangamite contains wool growing and cropping areas in the north, while the south has one of the most intensive dairying areas in the State. Farming includes milk, wool, beef, fat lamb and grain. Several milk processing industries are located within Corangamite. The Great Ocean Road, the 12 Apostles, the Port Campbell National Park, fishing and volcanic hills and craters attract tourists. Corangamite also produces gourmet food - cheeses, eel processing and ice cream. View council's performance.

Performance

View the Statewide Community Satisfaction Survey Results to find out what the community thinks about councils services.

Further information about council performance can be found in the Local Government in Victoria Report which brings together information from councils' annual reports to provide a snapshot of the current position of the sector.

The Victorian Government has introduced a mandatory system of performance reporting for councils to ensure that all councils are measuring and reporting on their performance in a consistent way. From 2015, this will enable members of the community to compare similar councils across 70 indicators and assess their performance. Find out more about the performance reporting framework.
