Casterton might just be that place you’re searching for…it offers you a ‘community lifestyle’… place where people still take the time to stop and talk, a life that’s at the very least worth exploring.
What’s so special about Casterton:

  • Friendly people that stop and say “hello”
  • Great community spirit
  • Lots to see and do
  • Good medical and educational environment
  • A safe, clean environment

Casterton is like traveling back in time to an era where life was less complicated, less stressed, where everyone knew their neighbor, and children could enjoy a game of ball at the park or walk to school without fear for their safety.
Have a look up and down the main street. The towns bustling, people are coming and going and all seem to be greeting each person they pass along the way. Suddenly anonymity is gone. There’s a sense of belonging, of people caring and knowing each other, even if just a little bit.
So if you are tired of the big city, tired of the crime, the smog, and the lifestyle. Consider moving to Casterton where time almost stands still and you’ll get to know your neighbor by their first name. There are many advantages to small town living!
Casterton has a vibrant and close-knit community, with many clubs, schools and facilities available for the locals and visitors. Several community events are held on an annual basis.
