The Region specialises in agriculture, viticulture, horticulture, food and beverage manufacturing, and tourism industries.
High-value agricultural production is supported by the scale, diversity and productivity of the Region’s soils, its substantial water infrastructure and irrigation capacity, a transport network with major highway corridors, and an international reputation for quality food manufacturing.
Large ‘heavy mineral sand’ deposits have been discovered across the Region and there are good prospects for further discoveries. The ‘ancient beach sands’ have become one of Victoria’s largest mineral exports.
Mining has the potential to become another specialisation industry, driving growth in other industries, including Construction, Transport, and Scientific, Technical and Professional Services.
The local Tourism economy draws on the Region’s unique natural endowments, which include the rivers and national parks.
These support a range of recreational activities including sightseeing, food and wine tasting, fishing, water sports, houseboat holidays, festivals and heritage experiences.
