Hamilton was Victoria’s first area of pastoral settlement, and today it remains the heartbeat of a thriving farming district. Nestled in a peaceful valley surrounded by rich grazing land, the regional city retains the feel of a grand old country town.
Picturesque church spires, parks and gardens and historic stone buildings reflect a proud and prosperous wool growing heritage. A vibrant arts scene, retail shopping precinct, gourmet food and wine, and stylish accommodation add modern day appeal. The area’s magnificent outdoors with its ancient volcanoes, tranquil lakes and waterfalls showcases nature at its best.
Hamilton is a vibrant place to live, work, learn and visit. The city boasts a diverse industry base that includes Tourism, Retail, Agriculture, Education, Health Services, Manufacturing, and Mining.
