Past activities and events

Summer Bashes

Summer bashes were held at the swimming pools in each of our towns. They featured inflatable slip and slide, music, sausage sizzle and games. 

  • Coleambally - 30 January 2021
  • Darlington Point - 26 January 2021
  • Jerilderie - 16 January 2021

These events, funded by the Australian Government Drought Communities Programme, were extremely popular.


Foot Golf

Jerilderie: Monday 28 September 2020 at Jerilderie Sports Club, 10.00 am - 12.00 pm and Coleambally: Wednesday 30 September 2020 at Coly Community Club, 11.00 am - 1.00 pm 

It's a combination of football (soccer) and golf. It is played the same way as golf, except players use a soccer ball instead of a golf ball, and the ball is kicked rather than struck with a club. 

Funded by NSW Youth Week (Department of Communities and Justice) and Murrumbidgee Council.
