Australia Day 2019

Fri, 8 Feb 2019

The Shire hosted the 2019 Australia Day function on Saturday 26 January. Approximately 80 people came and enjoyed a beautiful cooked breakfast and joined in on our Australia Day celebrations. We were fortunate enough to have Australian Ambassador Kath Mazzella OAM as guest speaker.

A massive thank you to all of our volunteers, especially the Wyalkatchem Rotary, for making this event possible.
