  • Industries

    The main Industries at present, in the shire, are in the rural sector such as farms so companies like Elders, Landmark and the like are very active. We also have Industrial Steel manufacturing and many wineries scattered throughout the shire, we would also be the biggest poultry growers in Victoria as well as pigs. We also have gold mines that are working such as Ballarat Goldfield in Berringa. And a rail line, which goes from the East to West and North to South, one goes through the town of Inverleigh and the other right through Bannockburn. For the Tourist we have the great rail (now walking) trail in the north Linton-Smythesdale and great Historical societies throughout the whole of the Plains.
