Event calendar terms of use

Terms and conditions — website events calendar

Mitchell Shire Council provides an events calendar so you can advertise events within Mitchell Shire.

You can submit the event details via the submission form provided. We will then review the content and, at our discretion, publish this content in appropriate publications and our events calendar.

Eligibility

You can submit an event calendar application if you are a tourism business operator, event organiser or community group that is providing an experience within Mitchell Shire.

For an application to be approved, the event needs to be held within Mitchell Shire Council. In some cases, events outside the shire’s boundaries may be advertised on the calendar if they are seen to be of significance to tourism in the Mitchell Shire Council. These events will be approved at the discretion of Mitchell Shire Council.

If you are organising an event, you must notify Mitchell Shire Council and ensure appropriate permits are approved prior to the event being advertised on the calendar. You can notify us via the expression of interest form.
