• Australia Day Celebrations 2021


Each year on Australia Day, we present all babies born in our Shire the year prior with a baby medallion and all children starting four-year-old kinder with a book.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to present recipients with their medallions and books at our Australia Day celebration. However, the medallions and books will be mailed to those who register.
