The Strathfieldsaye District (previously the Shire of Strathfieldsaye) was amalgamated into the new City of Greater Bendigo municipality in April 1994. The District is approximately 600 km2 in area and adjoins the City of Bendigo to the south-east. Much residential development has occurred close to the City of Bendigo. The remaining area is predominantly rural or rural residential. There are extensive but fragmented areas of public land which cover approximately 30% of the Municipality.
This study by M R Bluml, G Boyle and E Jones of the former Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, completed in October 1995; describes in detail the land present in the Strathfieldsaye District and provides information relevant to land use planning and assessment.
