  • The Goondiwindi Cinema and Theatre will remain closed;
  • The Goondiwindi pool closed for the 2019-2020 season at midday local time on 23 March 2020 - this decision was led by the lessee due to a decrease in patrons. The Inglewood pool will close as planned on Tuesday 31 March 2020.

The following sites will close from close of business today, 23 March 2020:

  • Council’s customer service office at 4 McLean Street, Goondiwindi;

Although the library services will close temporarily, the customer service offices at those sites (100 Marshall Street - Goondiwindi, and Inglewood and Texas) will remain open at this stage.

This list of closures is subject to advice from Australian and Queensland governments and Council will continue to update the community as the situation progresses.
