Stronger Familes, Stronger Communities
National Families Week is a time to celebrate with family, make contact with extended family and friends, and share in the enjoyment of family activities within the wider community. It is a time to celebrate the meaning of family and to make the most of family life.
This year’s theme highlights the important role families play as the central building block of our communities and that community wellbeing is enhanced by family wellbeing. Let’s take the time to reflect on the critical role that families play in teaching, supporting and nurturing children especially as they grow.

Proposed development Goomalling Greater Recreation Ground - partial closure of Quinlan Street between Hoddy & Lockyer streets
During the December 2015 Ordinary Council Meeting it was proposed and accepted in principal to extend the recreation ground at the Northern end and reduce the road reserve to South to accommodate extra parking and create a unified recreation precinct encompassing the sports facilities, town hall and Gumnuts Childcare Centre.
The proposed Land annexation will require partial closure of Quinlan Street between Hoddy and Lockyer Streets and cul-de-sac access to properties at the south western end between Lockyer Street and Lot 77 Quinlan Street. [Read more]
