This page keeps you informed of DELWP's activities in the Loddon Mallee region.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (DELWP) is tasked with creating liveable, inclusive and sustainable communities.
We focus on caring for and protecting the environment, and helping to respond to climate change through risk mitigation and adaptation strategies.
We recognise the link between the built and natural environment in the quality of our lives, and work to accommodate population growth while maintaining world class liveability and protecting our heritage for future generations.
We assist local governments to support people, communities and growth at the local level.
The northern part of the Loddon Mallee region extends 400 kms along the Murray River from the South Australian border in the west to Echuca in the east. The southern part of the region is the geographic centre of Victoria and extends as far south as the Macedon Ranges, within 50kms of Melbourne. Larger population centres are Bendigo, Mildura, Swan Hill and Echuca. There are ten local government areas.
