 Message From The Mayor



The Northern Peninsula Area is a very special part of Australia. It is rich in culture and has a strong and vibrant heritage.

My councillors and I are determined to make a positive difference to the people of the NPA. We will work through the challenges we face, and regularly consult with the community and traditional owners.

Our priority is the development of enterprises in the NPA, but attention is also given to community services, infrastructure, housing, youth training and education and culture.

In partnership with the community, Council and external agencies, we will build on the Area’s strengths. These are our people, our cultures, our position and our environment. As we say up here “land and sea is our bread and butter”.
