The Murray Region stretches along the Murray River, which forms much of the border for Victoria and New South Wales.
It encompasses prime agricultural land, with its alluvial soil and irrigation providing an ideal base for some of Australia’s largest food
producing industries. It comprises a 139,938 square kilometer area and is well serviced by sophisticated road and rail infrastructure, linking with the Hume, Newell and Sturt Highways to access major capital cities and ports.
With such a vast range of agricultural produce at their doorstep, many international food processors have established manufacturing plants in the Murray.
Manufacturing is an important regional industry supporting a large number of complementary businesses strengthened by a sophisticated transport network.
The Murray Region offers a rich lifestyle for residents with a strong retail sector, high quality restaurants, affordable housing and quality health services. The two large centres of Mildura and Albury-Wodonga are located at opposite ends of the region, providing city living in regional settings. This is complimented by picturesque landscapes and the Murray River itself – boosting the local recreational and tourism industries and providing a range of activities.
