The Strathbogie Shire is a great place to bring up a family, or to start a new one!

We have beautiful fresh air and open spaces, great schools and pre-schools, excellent maternal child healthcare, active sporting clubs, and we are only a short drive to major hospitals and specialists. In addition to the lifestyle families can experience in Strathbogie Shire, Council offers a range of services for families and young children.

We can support new mothers and babies through our Maternal Child Health service and young children who are eligible for our Supported Playgroups and much more.
