Mountain Rivers District

The Mountain Rivers District comprises of the following localities: Goongerah, Bendoc, Tubbut, Bonang, Cabanandra, Deddick Valley, Haydens Bog, Delegate River and Dellicknora.

The Mountain Rivers District is named for the many streams that trickle out of the springs and soaks of the Errinundra Plateau, shaping the valleys and eventually joining the Snowy River.


The most remote region in Victoria, the district localities are nestled in river valleys and separated by grassy plans, farmland and mountainous woodlands. Farming has always been the region’s major economic activity.


The area features some of the most stunning alpine forest and river gorge scenery in the state, as well as the heritage-listed McKillop’s Bridge. Said to be the longest arc-welded steel truss road bridge in the world, the 255-metre bridge is one of the standing wonders of Australian road-bridge engineering and is a popular launching place for experienced canoeists who wish to explore the Snowy River.

One Place One Plan Project (Place Planning)


One Place One Plan is a project that helps communities shape a plan for their place – reflecting how it is now and how it could be into the future. The project invites people to be part of conversations about how their community operates, the facilities and services they access and the way they work with council and other agencies. 


The conversations will build the community’s knowledge and understanding of council processes and incorporate data gathering and community profiling activities. This approach will provide communities with an opportunity to participate in decision-making about their place, as well as helping inform council of each distinctive community and district.


At the end of this project we will have developed a plan for and with the people of the Mountain Rivers District, as well as strengthening connections between council, its officers and the community.


Register your interest on Your Say East Gippsland and get involved in this exciting project.



One Place One Plan Project is funded by the Australian Government, Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development Building Better Regions Fund Community Investment Stream.
