Mitchell Shire Council

Strategically located just 40km north of Melbourne, Mitchell Shire is one of Victoria’s fastest growing outer metropolitan municipalities. It has friendly, active communities and vibrant towns; with quality education and health care. Mitchell Shire seeks to build a healthier, more liveable community through delivering improved services in strong partnership settings and reducing inequalities and disadvantage.

Mitchell Shire are committed to helping everyone to get active and outdoors to help lower risk of chronic disease, promote social inclusion and improve mental health and wellbeing. They form partnerships and launch projects that encourage sustained physical activity. Partnership with Live Life Get Active is just one example of their commitment to a healthier community.

Mitchell Shire Council partnered with Live Life Get Active in June 2016 and currently sponsors 1 locations. Without the generous support of Mitchell Shire Council, the provision of free outdoor fitness camps at these locations would not be possible. For more information about their camp locations and what members have to say, please read below.
