Shire of Ashburton Director of Corporate Services John Bingham talks about why he loves living in Tom Price, and the beautiful landscape and array of outdoor activities the region has to offer.
Hi I'm John Bingham from the Shire of Ashburton, and I'm the Director of Corporate Services. I've been in Tom Price since March 2017, one of the attractions to come to Tom Price was the role, Director of Corporate Services was a challenge for me from my previous role so it was very appealing in the sense of a career move.
One of the things that is attractive about Tom Price as well is the landscape in the area, there's Karijini gorges, there's four mountains; Mount Bruce, Tom Price, Mount Meharry and Mount Sheila. So if you're an outdoors person, being in Tom Price and working in the Shire has a lot to offer in terms of what you can do in your spare time on weekends and so on.
Shire of Ashburton has a lot to offer if you're a young person and you have a young family, there's a lot of opportunities here to earn a good living, the environment is healthy there's a lot of services and facilities that are available that might not be available so much in Perth and metropolitan shires, so there's many reasons as a young person with a family to move to Tom Price.
