Birchip Connect aims to link organisations and people together to encourage communication, foster mutually beneficial relationships and to nurture and celebrate our members successes.

Birchip is home to The Mallee Bull and the saying “As fit as a Mallee Bull” is universally accepted as embodying the characteristics of strength, determination and resilience. 

Birchip is a flourishing community with strong connections locally and globally and we want to use these to “Buck the trend” of declining population in rural communities.

Birchip Connect has established a ‘Giving Program’ to support the Birchip P-12 School and its students and to develop local community projects and infrastructure. The Giving Program allows individuals, groups or businesses to make an annual, weekly or a one-off donation of their choosing.
