'Behind the Scenes' Tours with Council

 

Ever wondered where your water comes from, how roads are built or what happens when the final curtain closes at the Glasshouse?

Well now’s your chance to find out! 

To celebrate Local Government Week starting 30 July, we're giving our community the chance to see first hand what goes on behind the scenes.  We've created a number of tours that showcase the different services Council provides to the community, so you can learn more about how Council works from the inside out!  

Each tour is FREE to attend but places are limited. Book your seat no later than 4pm on the day before the tour runs via the links below or call the Glasshouse Box Office on 6581 8000 or drop into the Glasshouse to get a ticket.
