Arnold set to travel Australia

Council is delighted to be participating in the Aussie Big Things promotion, partnering with The Royal Australian Mint and Australia Post to feature Swan Hill’s iconic Giant Murray Cod ‘Arnold’ on $1 coins and postage stamps.

This is a great honor for our region, and we are excited to be showcasing Arnold to the world.

The ‘Big Things’ initiative is a wonderful opportunity to promote our town and tourism for our region on such a large scale – literally. We hope more people will stop by and see Arnold and stay a night or two in our region.

Coins and stamps are available from Australia Post.

Spring is in the air

Our dedicated parks and gardens teams have been hard at work, preparing our green spaces for spring. The care and attention they have given to our public spaces and ovals is now on full display. Whether you are strolling through our local parks or having a picnic by the river, I encourage you to take a moment to appreciate these spaces and the beauty of our region.

As we embrace the joys of spring, I also remind you to remain vigilant. With the warming weather, reptiles including snakes, are becoming more active. Please be cautious and maintain a safe distance if you happen to come across any.

Additionally, please be aware of magpies during this time. Swooping magpies are common in our municipality, during spring. If you are aware of a nesting site, to minimise your risk of being swooped, consider wearing a hat and sunglasses or choosing an alternative route.

Robinvale Lantern Festival

Last week I attended another successful event in Robinvale, with our community illuminating the night sky once again with the enchanting Robinvale Lantern Festival.

This annual event brings together residents and visitors to celebrate the rich cultural diversity of Robinvale.

I congratulate the community, the event organisers and volunteers who work tirelessly to make this event a reality. The dedication and commitment to preserving traditions and fostering harmony within our community are commendable.

Consider becoming a Councillor

If you have ever thought about becoming a Councillor, there is no better time than now to start doing your homework.

Now more than ever we need to inspire great people to consider standing for Council for the future of our region.

Serving as a Councillor is a real privilege, it gives us the ability to directly participate in Council’s decision making and shape the immediate, medium and longer-term future of our municipality.

If you know of someone that you think would make a great Councillor, tap them on the shoulder and suggest that they investigate it -we are seeking a diverse range of voices to join us in the future.

Please feel free to get in touch with one of our current or past Councillor’s to find out more information about what is involved.
