Macalister Irrigation District PDF Print E-mail

The largest irrigation area south of the Great Dividing Range, the Macalister Irrigation District (MID) is predominantly located in the Wellington Shire, and takes its name from the Macalister River, the main source of the district’s irrigation water.

The MID extends around the river for 53,000 ha from Lake Glenmaggie to near Sale. Approximately 33,500 ha is currently used for irrigation, and of this 90% is under pasture.

The MID2030 strategy details a vision that by building upon the Macalister Irrigation District’s natural advantages of good soils, excellent water quality, water security and mild climate change, it will become an increasingly attractive area for irrigation investment.
