Natural environment

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.
