Kiandra wildflowerYou can make a difference...

As with any place with a small population, there's always more that could be done and not many people to do it.

So if it's not all happening the way you'd like - get in and have a go. You could make Adaminaby, Shannons Flat or Anglers Reach a better place for everyone!

It's our district & its future is in our hands.

We're told that the old town had a strong spirit of sharing, of belonging, of true community. That's a heritage to value. It's also a vision for our future.
