Youth Week 2023

NSW Youth Week will be held from 20-30 April 2023. It is a time to celebrate young people and the positive contributions they make to the Warrumbungle LGA.

“During Youth Week there will be a variety of activities and events available for children and young people right across the LGA,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “If you are between 12-24 years of age, do not miss your chance to get involved in the opportunities available during Youth Week.”

“The theme for Youth Week 2023 is ‘Connect. Participate. Celebrate.’ All young people in our area are encouraged to embrace the theme in the events and activities,” said Cr Doolan.

Some of the events in the Warrumbungle LGA include a tennis session at Binnaway, and the Mendooran Police vs Youth vs Teachers touch footy event. At Coonabarabran Sports and Recreation Centre there will be something for everyone with crafts, cooking and candle making as well as a Colour Run and barbecue. Macquarie Regional Libraries is also hosting Cosmic Crafts and workshops at Coolah, Coonabarabran, Baradine and Dunedoo.

“As well as the events planned in the Warrumbungle LGA there will be online activities available for young people. These can be found on the Youth Week website,” said Cr Doolan.

“Youth Week is a great opportunity for our community to celebrate young people and provides opportunities to share ideas, attend events, try new activities and have fun,” concluded Cr Doolan.
