Wamboin Community Association

Clare Valley, Wamboin, from Millpost Hill

WCA On-Line

WCA On-Line is an extension of the activities of the Wamboin Community Association, an on-line source for information such as our community newsletter, The Whisper, details of upcoming events, local news, and contact information for community groups that are active in the Wamboin area.

The Wamboin Community Association meets on the third Tuesday of every month, except January, at 7.30 pm, at the Wamboin Community Hall located at 112 Bingley Way, Wamboin. Residents, visitors and anyone interested in the Wamboin Community are welcome.


(1 October – 31 March)

The statutory bush fire danger period (NSW Rural Fires Act 1997) runs from 1st October to 31st March. This is the time when our area and elsewhere in the State are particularly prone to the threat of wildfire. It is also the time when you need to have your Bushfire Survival Plan prepared and be ready to implement, sometimes at very short notice.

To report fires or smoke sightings ALWAYS ring Triple Zero (000)

Burning off, if you must do it at all, should be reserved for the cooler months of the year. If, however, you are planning to light a fire in the open between 1st October and 31st March, you will need a Fire Permit.

Wamboin Curry Recipes

With a little more organisation, we're hoping to build on our small collection of recipes with those for the creations presented at this year's event. If you would like to submit your recipe, and all curry cooks on the night are encouraged to do so, please send it to curry@wamboincommunity.asn.au.

We will compile the contributions and advise interested parties on how we plan to distribute the product in due course. Of course, if your creation needs to maintain a degree of secrecy in the build-up to the event, we understand, but please consider submitting your magic formula after it has received the adulation of the assembled masses.
