  • Grant Success - Regional Bike Network

    We are pleased to inform you that the Shire of Goomalling has been successful in securing grant funding for the design and construction of new shared pathways on sections of Bowen Street and High Street as part of the Goomalling New Pathways Program

  • Rare Orchids illegally harvested from Konnongorring Reserve

    We are very disappointed to report that entire patches of the remarkable and rare Blood Spider Orchids have been dug up in the Konnongorring area. Sadly, it was not one plant but all of the orchids in the vicinity that were stolen without consideration of the consequence that we may never see these orchids again!

  • Youth Zone suspended

    Recently, there have been a number of incidents including vandalism of the town hall and verbal abuse of Council staff running the youth activities. The incidents have escalated to a point where Council is now concerned for the safety and welfare of our staff. Therefore, it is with regret that we announce the suspension of youth zone services indefinitely.
