The Parish of Rochester and Lockington lies to the south and south-west of Echuca. Rochester is the centre of a rich, irrigation dairy farming area, 28 kilometres south of Echuca. Lockington and Milloo, is mainly dairy farming and to the west, around Mitiamo and Dingee, there is a mix of dairy, cropping and fat lamb production. The Parish incorporates the former parishes Rochester and Lockington, and now is in partnership with the parish of Elmore, as they together seek to grow in their work, under God, over the coming years to strengthen God’s mission across the southern part of the Shire of Campaspe.
