Mayors Message


Welcome to our Council website. This website outlines Council services, policies, activities and facilities.

Many in the community will be aware of my passion for our beautiful City and I report with pride that in November Mount Gambier was the recipient of 3 KESAB Sustainable Communities Awards:

Best Council Project Award – for the outstanding Railway Lands development, including the nature play area, public art, water sensitive urban design, solar lighting, use of salvaged items and public space. The approach taken to activate the space was also recognised as innovative and highly successful. 

Outstanding School Initiative – awarded to MacDonald Park Primary School in recognition of their outstanding kitchen garden which includes elements that appeal to a wide array of students including nature play, herb and vegetable patches, fruit trees, animals, ponds and cubby houses.

Leadership and Youth – highly commended award to the City of Mount Gambier Youth Advisory Group in recognition of the organisation and specifically for hosting the Skate Park Leagues South Western Region Series 2016 – Mount Gambier Heat public youth event. 

Each Award I believe is indicative of the progressive community we live in and my congratulations and thanks to everyone who has been involved. 

Also in November, a delegation of 6 Government Representatives from Baotou, Inner Mongolia, China travelled to Mount Gambier and with the help of neighbouring Councils visited many of our region’s clean and green agricultural facilities and enjoyed our region’s hospitality. Our cities signed a Letter of Intent to Establish a Friendship City Relationship which will hopefully lead to mutual economic opportunities for Baotou, Mount Gambier and the region. 

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you will come and enjoy the unique experience our City and region has to offer.
