Lockhart Shire offers a range of fantastic locations that are available for you to use and enjoy. We actively encourage local and community events to be held on land owned and managed by Council.

Depending on the type of event you plan to hold, you many need approval from Council to hold your event.

Lockhart Shire Council encourages organisers to check the calendar of events so that your event doesn’t clash with another event, or your event may even complement another.
