COVID 19

These protocols apply to our staff, our customers and visitors to our premises, and councillors alike. Some non-essential services have ceased altogether, others are still in operation but due to social distancing have added levels of complexity. Please be understanding that we will do our best to maintain services and help in what are unique and challenging circumstances.

Legume

Situated in the northeast corner of the Shire, the small progressive community of Legume offers visitors hospitality and charm for which country villages are renowned.

A centrally located Community Hall offers visitor facilities, tennis courts and a general store and post office are close by.

Driving through rainforest to Urbenville and Woodenbong via Tooloom Lookout gives breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.

Take a break at Tooloom Falls (picinic facilities available) then continue through to White Swamp and the Acacia Plateau.

Best known as one of Australia’s finest producers of beef cattle, the rich red soil of Acacia Plateau produces some of the best potatoes and kiwi fruit in the country.
