The Shire is committed to continuously improving the online experience for people of all abilities.
We recognise that people with disabilities have the same fundamental rights to access information and services as others in the community. Access to information, communications and services, including the internet, is specifically recognised as a human right.
The Shire's website complies with WCAG 2.1 Level AA standard for accessibility.
We have worked hard to reduce the number of pdf documents on this website to improve accessibility. Where pdf documents are still necessary, these documents have been correctly tagged to be readable by screen readers and assistive technologies.
This website should be easily navigable for anyone using assistive technologies - please report any issues or requests for improvements to [email protected]
Many Shire documents are available in large print, audio format or translated into foreign languages on request. For further assistance, please visit a Shire office, call (08) 9780 5255 or email [email protected]

Interpreting and translating services
All Shire residents have the right to access programs and services provided by the Shire equitably, regardless of their cultural, linguistic or religious backgrounds.
Interpreting services are available for non-English speaking residents through the Australian Government’s Translating and Interpreting Service. This service is free for residents and ratepayers who do not speak English.
There are many types of translating and interpreting services available, including immediate phone interpreting, and pre-booked phone and onsite interpreting.
We can also translate relevant documents into other languages upon request.
