Glenelg Shire is in south-western Victoria, about 360 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD the main townships of Portland, Heywood and Casterton and many other small townships and localities. Rolling hills and rich agricultural land to the north give way to a scenic and secluded river region to the west. Pine and blue gum plantations line the roads through the hinterland, while a huge expanse of coastal beaches and rugged cliffs form the southern perimeter. This was our fourth year of designing and producing the Council’s annual report. The design reflects Glenelg’s offerings, celebrates Council’s achievements for the year and tracks its progress towards the completion of the Council Plan 2017–2021.
