District Council of Grant

Encircling the city of Mount Gambier, the District Council of Grant has some of the richest and most productive agricultural land in South Australia and a major economic advantage due to its location, good climate, fertile soil and availability of water; a progressive and caring Council, providing responsible leadership, sustainable development and cost effective quality services.

Through responsible management of its resources, the District Council of Grant provides excellent facilities, a high standard of service and effective representation to its ratepayers. Council continues to develop its links with the community and provides this web site to strengthen and facilitate this communication.

The aim of this website is to provide the District's businesses and community groups with an on-line presence, and to provide the local community and prospective visitors with information about Port MacDonnell and the District.
