If you’re a parent you can appreciate how quickly the young ones get bored and restless during school holidays.

Well rest assured, there are a number of fun activities and events happening in the Strathbogie Shire to make sure the kids are kept entertained and social throughout the holiday period.

The Euroa Community Cinema has a lot to offer, with kids matinee movies back by popular demand.

Maya the Bee: The Honey Games will be screened on Wednesday, 26 September at 2pm and a Sensory Friendly Screening will also be held on Thursday, 27 September at 1pm.

Sensory Friendly Films cater to those living with Autism and other sensory needs by creating a more relaxed environment where children can get up and move around, and where the lights will be turned up and the sound turned down.

Luis and the Aliens will be kicking off in the second week of the holidays, with three screenings.

The first screening is on Wednesday, 3 October at 2pm, a Sensory Friendly Screening will be held on Friday, 5 October at 1pm and if you missed out during the week you can also enjoy the film on Saturday, 6 October at 4pm.

Council is also running a free school holiday program for all primary and secondary school aged children.

The program will be conducted by Council’s Community Wellbeing staff and will take place in Avenel, Euroa, Nagambie, Strathbogie and Violet Town.

This will provide young people the opportunity to get active and socialise with their peers, with fun activities including interactive and drama games, art and craft and free Wi-Fi.

There are further details below, and you can contact Inga Hamilton at Council Offices on 1800 065 993 for more information.

Our local libraries in Euroa, Nagambie and Violet Town also have plenty of free school holiday sessions including stop motion video, pipe cleaner ninjas, yarn monsters and hungry caterpillar craft.

Are you interested in regional issues and developing your leadership skills to be a catalyst for positive change in the local community?

Strathbogie Shire Council invites enthusiastic citizens of the Strathbogie Shire to apply to participate in the Fairley Leadership Program in 2019.

The Fairley Leadership Program is a Goulburn Murray based organisation which aims to develop leaders to explore major issues facing the region’s communities and ways to implement positive change.

This decision to sponsor a member of the local community was made at the Ordinary Council Meeting in May 2018.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren is a Fairley Fellow, was the Executive Director of the program between 2013 and 2014 and Chief Executive Officer between 2015 and 2016, before becoming mayor.

“We have very strong connections with the Fairley Leadership Program, with three previous mayors who are also Fairley Fellows, including Colleen Furlanetto who was mayor in 2016 and is a powerful advocate for those living with a disability.”

“Fairley is a nationally recognised qualification that builds skills and confidence and is a great way to network with other leaders in the region,” Cr McClaren said.

“As a council, we saw this as a fantastic opportunity to invest in our community leaders, who will play a crucial role in building flourishing communities.”

Strathbogie Shire Council is planning to remove 14 trees at Euroa Caravan Park deemed hazardous and unhealthy in a recent independent arborists’ report.

The trees have been specifically identified and recommended for removal by a qualified independent arborist due to poor health evident by the extensive epicormics growth and the risk to public safety.

There will be a staged approach to the works based on risk.

Council values the amenity of the landscape along the Seven Creeks Reserve and will be undertaking remediation and replanting following the removals.

Council has been working with relevant stakeholders and community groups in relation to the proposed removals.

The removals of the trees require a planning approval process to be undertaken, which will provide an opportunity for community input via formal submissions.

If you have any further questions or concerns relating to the planned tree removals, please contact Strathbogie Shire Council on 1800 065 993 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
