In Lake Mac, we value our unique landscape, a place where the natural environment (bushland, coast, lake and mountains) is protected and enhanced; where our existing urban centres are the focus of our growth, maintaining their unique characteristics.
Council works with the community to take care of our environment.
For information about how to get involved, how to save resources and to know more about our environmental actions, read our environment report, our sustainable living and sustainable programs.
