Shire of Goomalling

Welcome to the Shire of Goomalling website

Permits required for vehicles over 19metres long, traversing on our local roads

It has come to our attention that a number of pocket road train owners are traversing within the Shire without a current Council endorsed permit. Even if you hold a Main Roads WA permit you are still required to obtain a permit from Council to transverse on local roads.

To renew your permit or apply for a new permit, please apply in writing advising of all Prime Mover and Trailer Registrations, along with $11.00 per configuration. Permits are valid for one year from the date of the apllication.

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 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.
