This year, the directory presentation will look a little different than previous years. In order for us to consider Council’s commitment to addressing climate change and limiting our environmental footprint, we have made the decision to create a simple printed map of the Shire and all listing locations within.

Visitors to our information centres and other locations will still be able to pick up a physical flyer with a map to find out more about what they can discover in our talented region. They will then be directed to a website / QR code online with digital listings with information and images for them to read and review. They will be able to filter the listings based on their specific interests.

Listings will be able to be updated throughout the year if you find details change such as your opening times, location, contact details etc. Additionally, if you are hosting any events at your location, the Shire can assist you to include this in the Council Events Listing on the Shire website.
