Citizenship Ceremonies

In line with our commitment to building a strong sense of community pride and participation in community building activities, we hold citizenship ceremonies at various times throughout the year.

Ceremonies are usually held in the Council Chambers and conducted by the Mayor, (or suitable alternate officer). Being a significant occasion, we encourage you when taking the citizenship pledge to dress, at minimum, in smart casual attire, or if appropriate the national/cultural/traditional dress of your home country.

We are pleased to provide you with the necessary pledge cards, certificates and look forward to presenting you with a small gift to celebrate your citizenship, as outlined in our Australian Citizenship Ceremonies Policy.

Citizenship ceremonies are conducted in compliance with the Australian CItizenship Ceremonies Code.
