Get to know your shire

Castlemaine streetscape

How's your general knowledge about our shire? Check out our online profile and learn all about our people and economy.

Monday 12 February 2018

School’s back so now is the perfect time for students (and grownups!) to learn a bit more about Mount Alexander Shire.

Mount Alexander Shire Council now has an interactive online profile where you can learn everything you ever wanted to know about the shire.

You can find out things like:

- What location has the highest percentage of shire residents born in the Netherlands?
- How many people have a Bachelor Degree qualification or higher?
- How many families have six or more kids?
- What township has the highest percentage of households with four or more vehicles?

The answers to these questions (and many more!) can be found in Council’s interactive online REMPLAN community and economic profiles.

Understand the unique characteristics of our community and economy and how they are changing over time with Australian Bureau of Statistics data from 2006-2016. This data can be displayed as graphs, tables or thematic maps and can be easily printed, added to a document or shared via social media.

The profiles are not only great for students, they’re also invaluable if you’re looking to make decisions on investment, starting or expanding a business, or just need to better understand who’s in your community.

And by the way, Muckleford South has the highest Dutch population, 25.3 percent of workers in the shire have a bachelor degree and higher, 0.12 percent of households have six or more kids and Tarilta has the highest percentage of households with four vehicles (with a whopping 78.26 percent), followed by Barfold (63.64 percent).
