Dungog Shire attended the 2015 CountryNSW Expo on Saturday, 1 August to Sunday, 2 August 2015 at the Howie Complex, Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.


Following the flood/storms that affected the area in April in 2015 Michael Johnsen, MLA, Member for the Upper Hunter facilitated Dungog Shire having a complementary stand at the 2015 CountryNSW Expo.  Over the last few years our Council had participated in the Expo but in a consortium with other Hunter Region Councils.

Attendance at the Expo was a partnership between Dungog Shire Council (including the Dungog Shire Visitor Information Centre) and Dungog District Chamber of Commerce (DDCC). The stand contained posters showcasing the area, various promotional materials from businesses in the Shire and a pack with information about local real estate, job advertisements, a copy of the local Telephone Directory, contact details for local pre-schools, primary and high schools and colleges, train times, information about upcoming events, copies of the Dungog Chronicle and local community papers, and maps of the area.
