Hay Shire Local Government Area

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!

Open Spaces Strategy on Exhibition

In the past the management of Hay's open spaces has been ad hoc, but with the development of the Hay Open Spaces Strategy, Council will attempt the following:

  • To gauge the needs of the community
  • To do a demographic analysis of different precincts in Hay
  • To classify the open spaces in Hay for ease of planning and budgeting
  • To provide guidelines for the standard of park development
  • To prioritise the development of open spaces for the future
This document will be on exhibition for a period of two months and can be found below:
