We are committed to the health and wellbeing of our community by providing access to leisure and recreation facilities, and services that respond to the cultural, social, recreational and demographic diversity of our community.
We provide a range of indoor and outdoor sporting and recreation facilities for both residents and visitors that cater for a broad range of needs. There is something for everyone, no matter what age or ability.
You can fly a kite, have a picnic, go bushwalking or perhaps try an exercise or craft class at one of the community centres.
There are parks, playgrounds, sporting fields, and bushwalking and cycling tracks that provide a relaxing and fascinating outdoor experience around our historical shire.
After consulting our community, the new Active Indigo Plan 2018-2026(PDF, 4MB) is now available and outlines how we will support the physical activity needs of our community for the next eight years.
Our Recreation Officer is always on hand to provide advice and support to our many volunteer sporting 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.
Some useful websites for grant opportunities include:
- Sport and Recreation Victoria undertakes the Country Football Netball Program, Sporting Grants Club Program and Community Sports Infrastructure Fund
- VicHealth offers a number of different grants to increase the opportunities for Victorians to participate in physical activity.
- Sport Northeast offers support and guidance to assist North East Victorian sporting clubs to become resilient and self-sustaining, as well as increasing the availability of sport for people of all abilities
