Rural Business Connections provides business information in easy-to-understand language, identifies options available to business owners and assists them to develop an action plan to help them take control of their business.

Rural Business Connections is community inclusive – so small businesses, those thinking about starting a small business, farmers, community group members and volunteers in Boort, Cohuna, Colignan, Cullulleraine, Kerang, Merbein, Mildura, Pyramid Hill, Red Cliffs, Swan Hill, Rochester and Wakool are eligible.

It’s cost-free for eligible clients – and low cost for those who live near our service areas.

This project was funded by the Australian Government under the Murray–Darling Basin Economic Development Program.
