Community & Recreation

Our communities are the heart and soul of the Inverell Shire. Each community exhibits pride in their own characteristics and are proud of their place within the Shire.

A strong community needs diversity, healthy lifestyles, as well as educational and work opportunities. Services and facilities are available to all who live and work in the Inverell Shire, including young people, older people and people with disabilities.

Through encouraging sound urban design, appropriate development and improving our localities, our communities will continue to grow and thrive.
