In line with the updated directions of the Minister, Council advises that all NSW caravan parks and camping grounds are closed except for the purpose of accommodating permanent residents of those premises or other persons who have no other place of permanent residence.

Those affected include (but not limited to):

  • Bethungra Dam Reserve
  • Illabo (Showground and Tennis sites)
  • Junee Golf Club
  • Junee Tourist Park
  • Sandy Beach Reserve

---------

In an effort to reinforce social distancing principles Council is strongly advising the community not to use public playground equipment. At the present time we do not have the resources to routinely disinfect playground equipment.

---------

On Monday, 23 March at midday the Junee Junction Recreation and Aquatic Centre closed its doors following a Directive from the State and Federal Government as a precaution against spreading COVID-19. As a result there is currently no access to the entire facility.

We understand that this is devastating for members and staff and we are working on ways to provide some form of health and fitness to the Junee Shire community and wider membership eg loaning of equipment (limited) and online hosted group fitness classes.

There is no timeframe on when we might re-open, therefore we have placed all memberships on hold until further notice. We have put all future direct debits on hold accordingly.

Please follow the Junee Recreation and Aquatic Centre and Junee Shire Council social media platforms and websites for regular updates. We will be sending out further communication directly to members in the coming days.

We wish everyone good health and please stay safe.
