Welcome to Lockhart Shire Council

Home of the True Country Spirit

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.

Lockhart is centrally situated 62kms south-west of Wagga Wagga, 62 kms east of Narrandera and 105 kms north of Albury. The Rock is on the Olympic Highway 25 kms south of Wagga Wagga with Yerong Creek another 15 kms down the Highway.
