From exciting events to world-class surf breaks, deep red wines and towering Karri forests, the Augusta Margaret River Shire is an amazing place to live, work and visit. The community wants to keep it amazing, and ensure that the new and existing businesses and job offerings are equally inspirational.

Council has identified the aspiration to support the economy to deliver livelihoods and enterprises that are sustainable, climate-resilient, diverse, and locally-owned in a circular economy, a regenerative and improving environment, and a just community that upholds the rights of everyone.
