Council has a number of facilities available for community use including:

  • Council Chambers – video link functionality & wall mounted smart boards for use
  • Town hall and supper room – these facilities have capacity for sit down functions of up to 150 people, use of a data projector, sound system & stage if required
  • Commercial kitchen
  • Race Course Complex – 1600m turf racecourse track, running rails, showground pavilion, dressage arenas, pony club, toilet blocks, two licensed bars and kiosk
  • Currie football oval & club room (for hire outside of the football season)
  • Airport Passenger Terminal – Available for use after operating hours.

If you are interested in using these facilities please contact the Council to request the availability of a facility. If vacant, you will then be required to complete a Hire of Council Facilities Form. Depending on the use of the facility, you may be required to submit a deposit and/or a cleaning bond. You will then be provided with an inspection of the facility prior to use along with a key. Your final invoice (if applicable) will be sent once a post-event inspection has been carried out by a member of Council.
