The Office of Sport’s Western Region delivers a range of services and initiatives designed to enhance sport and recreation in Western NSW.
With offices in the Central West & Orana, New England & North West and Far West, we work with the industry to facilitate best practice and cultivate greater capacity for sport and recreation in the community.
The Far West region (Wiradjuri country) plays host to a strong culture of town-based sporting rivalries. The remoteness, coupled with mining and agricultural history has resulted in the development of unique towns and villages, each with their own sporting traditions. Against a vast outback setting, amongst some of the most environmentally diverse landscapes in the world, the people of the Far West are passionate about their local sporting heroes and teams.
The vision for the Far West region is for widely accessible, community driven sport and active recreation that futureproofs and achieves long-term success through the development of valued partnerships and capacity. You can get in touch with our Far West office (Suite 1,167 Brisbane Street, Dubbo NSW 2830) on 13 13 02.
