Our Citizenship Ceremonies

The final step in the journey to become an Australian citizen, for most people, is to make the Australian Citizenship Pledge at an Australian Citizenship ceremony. Once the Department of Immigration and Border Protection has approved your application, you will be invited to attend a ceremony here at the Shire.Citizenship ceremonies are held approximately every two months, with a special ceremony held every year during our Australia Day celebrations on 26 January. New citizens are welcome to bring close family and friends to the ceremony to enjoy your naturalisation.Ceremonies take approximately 30 minutes. Conferees may choose between two versions of the Pledge, one that mentions God and one that does not. Following the ceremony, all new citizens will be required to complete an enrolment form for the Australian Electoral Commission, so you are eligible to vote. Light refreshments are served following the ceremony.
