Culture and Lifestyle
Lachlan offers a relaxed bush lifestyle that is family focused with events and activities to participate in on a regular basis. Events include gymkhanas, sports days, rodeos, cutting competitions and picnic race meets, all of which are held annually in our towns and villages. Lachlan is also home to the Condobolin and Lake Cargelligo annual Agricultural Shows, the Garden Festival and the Condobolin Tattoo to name a few.
The Lachlan Shire is also an active region which supports many activities for adults and children such as rugby union, rugby league, soccer, netball, tennis, bowls, croquet, golf, touch football and cricket. For those wishing to cool down on a hot summer day, Condobolin, Lake Cargelligo, Tottenham and Tullibigeal have public swimming pools. Or, for those who enjoy a swing of golf, enjoy one or all of our four golf courses at Condobolin, Lake Cargelligo, Tottenham and Albert.
Water skiing is another popular past time in the Lachlan Shire with ideal water skiing locations being Lake Cargelligo and Gum Bend Lake and also proves popular with bird watchers and fishing on the nearby Lachlan River.
