Planning Your Event

Upper Lachlan Shire Council’s vision is to establish a balanced and sustainable portfolio of vibrant tourism and community events that celebrate and generate awareness of the unique attributes of the Shire, creating compelling reasons for visitors and residents to explore and return to the area.

  • you are charging a participant fee
