Bathurst Regional Council requires early notification from organisations envisaging to stage an organised event/activity at Chifley Dam. Council will only approve an organised event/activity, subject to meeting the following requirements and conditions. Please provide preliminary advice as early as possible regarding the event/activity you wish to hold at the Chifley Dam - 6 months or earlier would be ideal. The Application Form and information is attached here.

Please contact Roads and Maritime (Transport for NSW) on 13 12 36 or visit their website for further information.
Once the application and documentation is completed please email the completed paperwork back to council or contact Council to is discuss the event/activity on 02 6333 6100.
Please note that approval must be granted from Council before an event or activity at Chifley Dam can go ahead.
