Be Kind to Business

With Government restrictions on many of the Shire's businesses to help flatten the curve of COVID-19, Council is encouraging locals to do what they can to support those still operating.

That's why Council has put together this page, to help promote those businesses who are still trading, even under different conditions. 

We're all in this together. Businesses are changing the way they do business to continue to provide goods and services - are you able to help them out by continuing to shop with them?

To quickly navigate this page, click on one of the below categories:

While Council will frequently update this page, given the current fast changing environment, please contact businesses directly for their latest updates. 

If you would like your business promoted here, or are looking for support information or to talk through your situation, please contact Council’s Investment Attraction & Business Support Team on 5220 7111 or [email protected].
