Heyfield has won the inaugral MAV award for Australia's Strongest and Most Resilient Community in 2017.

The award highlights the wonderful work the town has done over the years; from rallying to keep local infastructure open, building community facilities and being there for others in times of need. 

Go Heyfield!


Thanks to the Wellington Shire Council for awarding the 2017 Heyfield Food and Wine Festival the Best Community Event of the Year  and local resident, Thomas Crosbie, Young Citizen of the Year in this years Australia Day Awards.

The Heyfield Traders and Tourism Association are thrilled to have received recognition for the Festival and thank everyone who helped organise such a successful day. It wouldn't be possible without the wonderful stall holders, local producers, wineries and volunteers.

Mr Crosbie has carved an Information Technology career for himself in Heyfield after missing out on an opportunity in Melbourne. Melbourne’s loss was definitely Heyfield’s gain, with Mr Crosbie proving an instrumental part of the Heyfield community working with the elderly and disadvantaged with their IT problems and refurbishing unwanted computers and laptops and re-purposing them. Mr Crosbie works regularly with the Heyfield Community Resource Centre and his general “can-do” attitude is respected throughout the community.  

Congratulations to all the other winners and nominees of the Wellington Shire Australia Day Awards. These are a wonderful reminder of all the work that the community groups do across the Wellington region. 

We look forward to seeing everyone at the event in October, 2018.
