As we head into some very warm weather, remember to be vigilant about mosquitoes.
Our Shire was severely impacted by floods and storms in November 2022. We're now in the recovery phase with our focus on repairing and reinstating access to closed roads.
We are fortunate to be home to a great number of practicing artists, and we are dedicated to supporting a vibrant calendar of cultural events including music, visual art, literature, community creations, film and public art.
From theatre groups to art groups, we embrace and nurture the artistic and cultural needs of our community.
Our Arts and Cultural Strategic Plan(PDF, 2MB) sets out our vision for a dynamic environment for the arts to thrive.
Our Community Development Officer is always on hand to provide advice and support to our many volunteer art groups, including assistance in applying for local, state or national funding grants.
There are a number of grants available to community groups at different times of the year.
