The Wimmera Primary Care Partnership is made up of 30 member agencies including local government, welfare, disability and education. We have five health services spread over fourteen campuses, two bush nursing centres and an Aboriginal controlled health co-op. We cover an area of 28,041 sq km with a population of 38,538 including the shires of West Wimmera, Yarriambiack, Hindmarsh and Horsham Rural City. Just over half the population resides in Horsham, with only three other towns, Nhill, Dimboola and Warracknabeal have populations of more than 1,000 people
The Wimmera is characterised by small towns spread over large distances. The area is mainly agricultural, producing broad acre crops (predominantly wheat, oilseeds and legumes), other agriculture includes olives, native flowers, poultry, lamb and wool production.
The Wimmera is one of Australia's most dynamic agricultural regions in terms of new investment, new product and innovation.
