Mark values access and equity to the benefits of our shire, region, state and country for all, especially those in more remote communities and our Koorie, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities and peoples.
East Gippsland represents the best of all worlds. Mountains, sea, rivers, lakes are natural resources that provide opportunities for all in so many ways.
