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 Mooroopna Community Plan was first developed in 2010 and continues to play an important role in community driving priorities which are important to them. Community consultation on the review of this plan has included a survey through Shaping Greater Shepp, feedback boxes at key locations, attendance at Activities in the Park and community events, targeted feedback requests from community and sporting groups, early year’s services providers and visits to local businesses.
