Why we work at Corangamite Shire
Our large geographic area of 4,400 km2 is home to a number of stunning and diverse natural landscapes including the world-renowned Twelve Apostles and Port Campbell National Park. We also have some of the deepest lakes in Australia and plains dotted with dormant volcanoes as far as the eye can see.
Our largest township, Camperdown (pop. 3,496), is both the geographic and commercial centre of Corangamite Shire. Terang (pop. 2,288) and Noorat are a 20 minute drive west, Cobden (pop. 1,839) is 10 minutes south, while Timboon (pop. 1,202) is 30 minutes south. Smaller towns in the north include Skipton, Derrinallum, Darlington and Lismore. In the south there is the farming community of Simpson and the small coastal towns of Princetown and Port Campbell.
