Indigenous communities


In order to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Victoria, we must all do our part. Together we can keep our families, mob and ourselves safe, strong and well.

Central Goldfields Shire Council has created a Goldfields Mob facebook page for local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members to share information and connect with each other.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community sector partners are working closely with government to coordinate response plans and ensure communities have the necessary information, resources and support they need. For detail information please click here.

You can download our information pack for Indigenous communities here(PDF, 4MB)
