A quality lifestyle is Mount Gambier's inheritance and continued vision. The City of Mount Gambier is entrusted with guiding the preservation and enhancement of the lifestyle of this rich and diverse City.
The first Town Council was formed in 1876 with Mount Gambier being officially declared a City in 1954. Today's Mount Gambier with a population approaching 24,000 people is the regional centre for South East of South Australia and the Western Districts of Victoria, servicing the commercial, retail, social, sporting and cultural needs of the region.
