Welcome to the Shire of Goomalling website
Shire of Goomalling Newsletter
The Spring edition of our quarterly newsletter is out now. Topics include the busy Winter months at the Slater Homestead and the Caravan Park, the exiting progress in the redevelopment of the Goomalling Community and Sport Centre, the Honorary Freeman and Appreciation Awards presented to three ex-Councillors and lots of dates to include in your diary.
Landscaping at Slater Homestead
We are very excited and very very grateful for all the assistance with the landscaping project.
Kim Bywaters has very kindly loaned his loader and Ron Dadd used his expertise to level and prep the area. Ron together with Jake Jarvis and John Hardingham kindly spent their Friday laying the lawn.
An Eremophila garden, a Diosma garden donated by the Farm Shed, and a few large boulders frame the area beautifully.
The vibrant green will increase the visual impact of these beautiful buildings. It is a great addition to the Homestead as a venue and will make the barn so much more user friendly for your end-of-year functions.
Donate your unwanted mobile phones at the Shire Office
For every phone donated, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife will receive between $3 and $5 (depending on the phone) from the Aussie Recycling Program.
By recycling your unwanted mobile/s, you will:
- ensure that reusable resources don’t go into landfill
- stop toxic metals from polluting Australia’s incredible wild places
- support a 44-year-old Australian not-for-profit: the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife
Any and all unwanted mobile phones and chargers are greatly appreciated. There is a collection box at Shire of Goomalling Adminiatration Office, 32 Quinlan Street, Goomalling.
Dust off your Happy Holiday snaps
Last year the wedding photo exhibition was of great interest locally and a great conversation topic for all who visited Slater Homestead. Local wedding images created a great display of fashion styles and photographic techniques spanning a hundred or so years.
We believe Travel & Holiday Photos could also hold a similar appeal.
The brief for the image is that it would be somewhere recognisable or locals are identifiable and/or an outstanding photo. High resolution images can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring your photo into the office and one of the staff will scan it and give it back to you. A little information about the image would also be appreciated - where it is taken, year and permission and name of anyone in the pic.
Goomalling is a great destination for a weekend escape or a stopover on your way to or from Perth. For all tourism related info, including maps, accommodation, things to see and do, places to eat and drink, please visit www.visitgoomalling.com.au.
