Our Nordic Pole Walking volunteer leaders are an enthusiastic bunch, raring to go with our first Nordic Pole Walking for Seniors program, starting next month!

It's not just walking with poles... It's exercise that develops strength, balance and general fitness. And each session of the program includes a warm-up and warm-down after.

For more info, contact us on

Thanks to support from CHIRP Community Health and funding by Musculoskeletal Australia - MSK, we're thrilled to be able to bring Nordic Pole Walking to our regions seniors for FREE!

Council is urging everyone to continue to their good recycling habits while our waste contractor Veolia Environmental Services has suspended the processing of recyclables until further notice, due to market forces associated with recent bushfires.

Household bin collection will continue as usual, including the fortnightly collection of yellow-lidded bins. Residents are encouraged to wait until recycling bins are full before putting them out as commingled materials will be sent to landfill in the short-term.

Residents can also continue to drop off sorted recyclables such as paper and cardboard, glass bottles and jars, and steel and aluminium based materials like tins, cans and empty aerosol containers at transfer stations in Castlemaine and Maldon for recycling for free.

Council is committed to responsible waste management and will continue to work with Veolia to investigate alternatives.

We all have a role to play. Please continue to reduce, reuse and recycle to help reduce the amount of waste produced in the first instance. Read more.
