About Get Lost

Get Lost is a Mount Alexander Shire Council initiative developed in partnership with the many creatives who live, work and play in our region.

We invite you to get to know our creative community, explore our fantastic venues, get to an event or browse our marketplace – there’s an awful lot going on here and Get Lost is here to help you navigate it all.

If you’re a local creative individual or enterprise - established or just starting out - please sign up to become a Get Lost member - we’ll support you to build and activate your profile if you’re keen for others to find you..


More about our creative shire

Mount Alexander Shire is a rural community with our largest town of Castlemaine located 90 minutes from Melbourne. Some say Castlemaine is just an extension of Melbourne in the bush. UNESCO threw its weight behind our region’s creativity in late 2019.

Together, our community has worked incredibly hard to respond to significant challenges and opportunities for our valued arts, culture and creative industries.

The Victorian State Government supported our community’s ongoing collaborative efforts to develop the Get Lost platform in 2021, through the Regional Recovery Fund.

With support from Senior Elder, Uncle Rick Nelson, this initiative takes place on, and reflects our values for, Djaara Country – the lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung.

What we're currently up to...

Get Lost is an evolving platform and we'd love to hear your thoughts on how we could use this site to support your creative work. Please contact arts@mountalexander.vic.gov.au with feedback, suggestions or changes anytime.
