You 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.
With the feasibility study underway into expanding the Snowy Hydro Scheme, this region is in the news and hopes are rising for the future.
