Working together to build a fit, friendly and fun-filled community.

Have Your Say - Active Indigo 2018 - 2024

Indigo Shire Council is preparing an Active Indigo Plan for the next 8 years—this  plan will guide how we support the physical activity needs of our community.  We are working with Wendy Holland from communityvibe to do this. We want to know:

  •  How do we encourage people to be more active?
  •  What can Indigo Shire Council and the community do to improve recreation facilities?

Give us your feedback and go in the draw to win some great prizes including 5 x Indigo Shire Pool Season passes and 5 x $50 Rebel Sport vouchers.

communityvibe is working in partnership with Council to develop the five year plan.
