In the best interest of the safety, health and wellbeing of the Hobsons Bay community and Council staff in the midst of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Council has made the decision to close all Hobsons Bay Library branches for 30 days (until April 16 2020) and cancel all Council delivered public events and face to face community consultations for the next 60 days (until 16 May), or until further notice. Online consultation via Participate Hobsons Bay will continue when and where possible.
For tens of thousands of years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have cared for country.
In this place, the peoples of the Kulin nation sustained healthy communities and wisely managed the resources of these lands by the bay. We pay respect to the Elders, past and present, and welcome the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as we shape a future in which all thrive.
