The Murray Dairy Region is one of the largest dairying regions in Australia, straddling the Murray River from the Alps to Swan Hill.
It covers the Northern Irrigation and North-East regions of Victoria and the Riverina and Upper Murray regions of New South Wales.
The region has a total population in excess of 350,000 with eight major towns that have a population near 10,000 or greater.
The region is also serviced by the regional centres of Shepparton (pop. 30,000), Albury-Wodonga (pop. 72,000) and Bendigo (pop. 90,000 - approx. 1 hour to the south).
The large population base sees the region very well serviced with health and education facilities including universities and TAFE colleges.
