Indigo Shire is calling for applications for the Get Active Indigo grants program. The program aims to:

  • Increase resident participation in physical activity.
  • Fund a diverse range of recreation program ideas across the shire.
  • Support committees, clubs, community initiatives and recreation service providers to get the community more active.
  • Increase awareness via targeted promotion about physical activity opportunities shire-wide.
  • Trial local recreation project ideas.
  • Help residents think differently about ways to Get Active.
  • Respond to place-based recreation programming needs.

We encourage you to contact us to discuss the suitability of your project before putting in an application.  Contact our Recreation Officer on 1300 365 003 or email

  • The project meets the objectives of the program, specifically to increase physical activity of the residents of Indigo Shire.
