Welcome to Northern Midlands Council website.

Northern Midlands is one of the largest and most diverse municipalities in Tasmania.

It covers an area of 5,130 square kilometres, extending from Liffey Bluff in the west to Mount St John in the east (150kms) and from Relbia in the north to Tooms Lake in the south (95kms).

The landscape changes from mountainous country on its eastern and western boundaries to extensive grazing lands renowned for fine wool production, the rich agricultural river flats of the Esk, Lake and Macquarie Rivers; historic towns and villages; and from small businesses to multi-million dollar enterprises.

The population of close to 12,500 is predicted to be maintained over the next 10 years. Development continues to occur in and around the towns of Longford, Perth and Evandale.
