Bellingen Shire Council is celebrating NSW Local Government Week 2018 from 30 July until 5 August.The theme for this year is ‘The Power of Community’, highlighting the importance of local democracy and representation.


During this special week we encourage people to explore some of the ways in which local government is part of their lives and to showcase some of the things Council does for our community.


Bellingen Shire Mayor, Cr Dominic King said “While many people are aware that we manage rates, roads and rubbish, the breadth and diversity of our work often goes unrecognised.”


“On behalf of Councillors and staff I invite our community to come along to some of the special events we have planned to celebrate the week,” added the Mayor.


Bookings are essential for bus trips, otherwise just turn up. Visit Council’s website at for further information.
