Peterborough - Western Victoria - 2015 Legendairy Capital Finalist


Home to less than 1,000 residents, the dairy industry is an important part of the Peterborough community on a number of levels, locals say. A key service centre to the surrounding region in south west Victoria, the LEGENDAIRY town is also a major holiday destination for dairy farmers and popular retirement spot.

Community spirit is strong in Peterborough where residents gather for regular town meetings and celebrations such as the Seaside Festival and the annual Tennis tournament.

Peterborough will use its community grant to begin the digitalisation of historic moving image footage, taken by a number of dairy farmers and local community members in the district.
