Albury Gold Cup Half Day Holiday

The NSW Government has released guidelines to assist in making applications to the Minister for Industrial Relations for the declaration of local public holidays under the Public Holidays Act 2010, including broad community consultation.

We're seeking community feedback on whether council should continue to support a half day public holiday for the Albury Gold Cup.

We're undertaking consultation with a range of stakeholders including business, industry, tourism and the education sectors as well as the general public to determine the level of support for the holiday.

Council specifically wants to better understand the impact of the holiday on business activity, employment, tourism and the local economy as well as the importance of the Gold Cup as a social and community event.

To have your say, please answer this short questionnaire.

Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).
1. Should Council continue to support a half-day local public holiday being declared for the Albury Gold Cup? *
2. Do you think the Albury Gold Cup is an important tourism and social event for Albury?
