Our Partnership

The Gippsland Regional Partnership is one of nine such Partnerships across the state, established by the Victorian Government, recognising that local communities are in the best position to understand the opportunities and challenges faced by their region.

Over the past two years, our Partnership has heard from thousands of people living and working in Gippsland, including through two Regional Assemblies and two mini Assemblies.

We've taken your voice to the heart of the Victorian Government, and we look forward to hearing from you in 2018.


2018 Regional Assembly

Our 2018 Regional Assembly was held on Thursday 28 June in Wonthaggi, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

It was an opportunity to hear what the Partnership has achieved to date, and for participants to add their thoughts on our top priorities — connectivity, energy and resources, family and community wellbeing, food and fibre, skills and education, visitor economy and tourism, and new jobs and industry.

It was great to see so many people there and to hear the depth of conversation.

We also held a smaller satellite session in Lakes Entrance at the same time where attendees had a chance to interact with the Assembly in Wonthaggi.

If you have any questions about the Assembly, please contact the Gippsland Regional Partnership directly via email or call the regional support office on 03 5116 7300.


Have your say

Is there an initiative that is making a difference in your community that others should know about and could try elsewhere?
