Flagstaff Hill Closed to help stop the spread of Covid 19

To help stop the spread of COVID-19, Flagstaff Hill will be closed to the public from 5pm, March 20.

We are among the busiest Council sites in terms of people, many of whom are visitors to our city – both international and domestic.

We also have large numbers of volunteers, many of them older members of our community and potentially more vulnerable to the impact of COVID-19.

Our School Holiday Program has also been cancelled but we are offering an online School Holiday Program for families to download here and do at home.

You can still reach our staff by calling 03 5559 4600 or emailing flagstaffhill [at] warrnambool [dot] vic [dot] gov [dot] au
