Be Kind Central Goldfields


We’re excited to have joined the Ballarat Council Be Kind campaign. We're all in this together so, as part of the campaign, we'll feature initiatives that help support and connect our community during this difficult time.

Government, Council and community initiatives will be featured under the following banners:

  • Be Kind to Business
  • Be Kind to Others
  • Be Kind to Yourself
  • Be Kind - Be Safe

If you are involved in a support program, or know of one that would be great to feature, please email us at or tag us #BeKindCentralGoldfields

Be Kind to Business

Follow @CentralGoldfields, @Visit Maryborough and Surrounds and @Committee for Maryborough on facebook for information about local businesses and how you can support them. 

Be Kind to Others

Keep an eye out on our facebook page for initiatives around how you can support each other during this difficult time.

We're encouraging residents to reach out to their neighbours during this time. We've distributed a Be Kind Neighbour Postcard to every resident in the Central Goldfields Shire or you can also download and print a copy here. (PDF, 185KB)

Be Kind to Yourself

Take care of yourself by following the health advice of the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. You can also find information about tips for self-isolation and the contact details for mental health support agencies on our website here. 

Be Kind - Be Safe

To keep yourself and our community safe, everyone must follow the Victorian Government advice to stay home and only leave the house for:

  • Shopping for food and supplies
  • Exercise
  • Medical care
  • Work and Education - if necessary.

The latest information about government restrictions is available here
