Exciting Heritage... Positive Future

The Hay Shire terrain is largely a flat, almost treeless saltbush plain offering a magnificent 180 degree skyline which at night becomes a canopy of stars as far as the eye can see.

The Hay Shire incorporates the town of Hay and the villages of Booligal (made famous by Banjo Patterson, in "Hay and Hell and Booligal"), Maude and One Tree.

Travellers will arrive in the Shire via the Sturt, Mid-Western or Cobb Highways which intersect at Hay. A friendly rural community, Hay is situated on the picturesque Murrumbidgee River, about halfway between Sydney and Adelaide and just over 400 kilometres from Melbourne.

The Hay Shire has a surprising amount of attractions worth a visit including wonderful museums, beautiful parks and gardens, and excellent recreational and sporting facilities.

Whether you are a visitor or a resident, the Hay Shire has much to offer with its
Exciting Heritage and Positive Future

Community Litter Grants

Funding Available for Community Groups - CLOSES FRIDAY 29TH AUGUST 2014

Keep NSW Beautiful and the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) are running a grants program to resource community groups who want to undertake a project to cut litter in their neighbourhood. The grants are used to refurbish or improve a place where litter is currently accumulating.

The Community Litter Grants award up to $5,000 to groups who carry out a ‘Local Litter Check’ (following a specific methodology developed by the EPA) and use this information to come up with a plan to change the character of their litter hotspot from a public garbage can to a place community members can use and enjoy.

Even if you don’t want to apply for the full grant, you can acquire some funds for your group by doing the Local Litter Check alone, as all groups who carry out the Check will receive $300 reimbursement on top of the grant.
