Kilmore Means Business!

Kilmore has a very strong commercial focus and it is the regional centre for banking, postal services, accountancy, law and real estate services. This area is also serviced by a locally owned and produced weekly newspaper, which circulates throughout the region, with an audited sale of over 4000 copies per week.

Kilmore also houses the Mitchell Shire Regional Library headquarters which is open seven days a week, 9am-5pm. This library houses a substantial Regional Studies Collection of historical and genealogical reference materials which draws users from a wide area. These specialised facilities cater to an immediate catchment of some 15,000 people.

Kilmore's specialty shops draw their clientele from a wider area, even from interstate. Regular racing fixtures, the busy Northern Highway which passes through the town, and the two boarding schools, and nearby conference centre bring interstate and overseas visitors to Kilmore.

Further opportunities exist in the agriculture, commercial, education, equestrian, health, hospitality and tourism, industrial, sport and recreation, and transport service sectors, with particular reference to consultants and innovators.

To complement its five antique shops, commercial opportunities appear to exist in the area of practising old crafts, particularly in the heritage restoration of furniture and buildings, and for an arts and craft gallery. Hospitality opportunities exist for the provision of accomodation and for a quality restaurant.

There appears to be also opportunities in the horse handling and training area. No horse transport company presently exists in the region.

The arts, with several existing dance and music tutors, provides further scope for specialised part-time tutors.

To further support the promotion of Kilmore as a vibrant commercial centre the Institute launched their leaflet Kilmore Means Business+ ... with Access+ in February 1998.
