Rural Township Life

Ararat Rural City Council has a number of smaller communities within the municipality.  These small townships provide a unique lifestyle opportunity for those wanting to escape larger city areas.  Community Development Groups exist in all of our rural townships.  Each of these groups develop action plans for community and economic development where they live.
