Buloke Shire

With farming communities at its centre, Buloke Shire is Victoria’s true agricultural heartland.

The Shire covers more than 8,000 square kilometres of the Mallee region in the state’s northwest, stretching between Lake Tyrrell, Victoria’s largest salt lake, and the northern reaches of the picturesque Avoca River.

Buloke Shire Council serves the communities of Wycheproof, Charlton, Donald, Birchip and Sea Lake, as well as the smaller townships of Berriwillock, Culgoa, Nandaly, Nullawil and Watchem.

Agriculture, specifically grain production, is the primary source of income and employment in the area. Other forms of farming, education, retail, community service sectors and light industry also provide employment and income.

Buloke is named after the ‘buloke’ or ‘bulloak tree’, "Allocasuarina luehmannii", which is common in the area.
