The Hay Shire incorporates the town of Hay and the villages of Booligal (made famous by Banjo Patterson, in "Hay and Hell and Booligal"), Maude and One Tree.

Travellers will arrive in the Shire via the Sturt, Mid-Western or Cobb Highways which intersect at Hay. A friendly rural community, Hay is situated on the picturesque Murrumbidgee River, about halfway between Sydney and Adelaide and just over 400 kilometres from Melbourne.

The Hay Shire has a surprising amount of attractions worth a visit including wonderful museums, beautiful parks and gardens, and excellent recreational and sporting facilities.

Hay Shire - A Small Business Friendly Council

The NSW Office of the Small Business Commissioner (OSBC) has partnered with the NSW Business Chamber to develop a ground-breaking new program to increase the number of councils working proactively with small businesses.

The Small Business Friendly Councils (SBFC) Program is a first for Australia, giving councils willing to make small business a priority the opportunity to be recognised as ‘Small Business Friendly’.

The OSBC and NSW Business Chamber want to improve the overall business climate for small businesses in NSW and raise awareness of the difference local government can make by better engaging with small business.

Councils who sign up to the Program commit to a Charter which sets out a number of benchmarks councils must agree to meet to foster and support small businesses in their area.

The Small Business Friendly Councils Program was launched on 17th September at the Casula Powerhouse.
