Jam-packed events and entertainment

Marquees, tables and chairs have begun popping up in parks and picnic spots throughout the Shire, creating more outdoor dining spaces and providing exciting new experiences for residents and visitors. Throughout the coming months these spaces will host a smorgasbord of free music, entertainment and activities catering to people young and old.

The community can look forward to a jam-packed schedule of events and entertainment, starting on the lawns of Drouin and Warragul's Civic Parks featuring the following local businesses: Warragul Wellness Centre & YMCA, Yoga Life, Challenge Yourself PT and Complete Health PT.

These businesses will treat the public to free:

  • Pilates
  • Yoga
  • Bootcamp
  • Beginners movement
  • Tai chi outdoor fitness classes

Bookings are not essential. Simply check out the timetable on council's website, grab your yoga mat and turn up.

With more events in the pipeline across the next three months, the community is invited to Watch This Space for more to come!
