Welcome to Lockhart Shire Council

Lockhart Shire nestles in the heart of the Riverina and is one of the regions most productive agricultural and pastoral areas. Of strong pioneering heritage and steeped in history, Lockhart Shire's main towns and villages include Lockhart, The Rock, Yerong Creek, Pleasant Hills and Milbrulong. Each community has it's own unique character and history, and the Shire offers visitors a relaxed country atmosphere steeped in history.
