Merrigum Community Plan

Merrigum is a thriving, attractive rural town that values all members of the community and provides a range of quality programs, services and facilities to enable people to live, work and recreate locally.

Merrigum is an attractive small town with a population of 672 and is situated in the heart of the Goulburn Valley 30km west of Shepparton.  Its primary industries are fruit growing and dairy farming.

Some of Merrigum’s achievements include:

  • Merrigum Hub Commercial Enterprise feasibility study
  • Merrigum Recreation Reserve Masterplan endorsed by Council
  • Information board
  • Merrigum Christmas Party
  • Replace town entry signs

Merrigum’s priorities:                                                      

  • Merrigum Recreation Reserve Tennis/Netball courts and surrounds with the North West Flank Facility to be built concurrently to complement the new courts and address the immediate need for such amenities
  • The development of more housing
  • Water play / splash equipment for Merrigum Pool
  • An upgrade to the facilities at the Recreation Reserve
  • Attract more families to Merrigum and students to the school

The Merrigum Community Plan Steering Committee would love to hear from any community members happy to be involved in the Merrigum Community Plan.
