Casterton is really spoiled for health care. The core of the local health community is the Casterton Memorial Hospital, a general hospital providing a broad range of health services to the people of Casterton and surrounding communities.For the elderly there are a number of aged care facilities and nursing homes while there is an active community nursing program, meals on wheels and palliative care groups.
The rolling green valley of the Glenelg River is one of Casterton’s beauty spots. Take a walk or bike ride along the Kelpie Walking Trail or explore the junction of the Glenelg/Wannon rivers. Enjoy a picnic or BBQ on the banks or drop in a line along the river or at the Ess Lagoon. A detail fishing guide is available at the Casterton Visitor Information Centre.
With a kindergarten, two primary schools, dedicated secondary college and community centre offering adult education and recreational courses, Casterton is well equipped in the education arena.
