Mooroopna is a safe, vibrant and thriving community where residents are connected and young people are valued and involved.

Mooroopna’s population is 7,837 and is located 4km west of Shepparton and is surrounded by orchards, agriculture and horticulture.  Located on the Goulburn River it is a town that utilises the river and parklands, attracts visitors and has infrastructure, transport and services that match the community's growth and need.

The first Mooroopna Community Plan was developed and endorsed in 2010 with many projects completed and achieved. A significant review was undertaken with the Mooroopna community in 2015 and a new Community Plan endorsed by Council in October 2015.

Some Mooroopna’s achievements include:

  • Sound shell/shelter at John Gray oval
  • Men’s shed open
  • Supported the historical society to find a home
  • Supported the development of the Ferrari Park Masterplan
  • Supported the development of the RiverConnect Paths Strategy
  • Multipurpose storage shed

  • Improved access and perception of Mooroopna Railway Station
  • Support walking path from Kidstown to Gemmills Swamp
  • Stevens Crescent Park – activities and infrastructure
