Message from the Chamber President

Welcome to 2016 - a year that promises many challenges and (hopefully) rewards for the Scone business community and the community as a whole.

The Chamber's attention this year will be, as always, on Advocacy and Networking. The Board has set itself some challenges and targets that will spark several events throughout the year, including breakfasts, networking functions, and opportunities for training. Additionally, the Chamber wants to act as a catalyst for economic activity, with promotions in the pipeline for local produce and for a Kelly Street Christmas event; and all these events will occur against the background of the looming New England Highway bypass.

I hope you have all had a break over the Christmas/New Year period and your batteries are fully charged for a busy and challenging year ahead.

Welcome to the Scone Chamber of Commerce

The economy of Scone is diverse. From a traditionally rural background the area has developed a strong horse industry and is proud of its title Horse Capital of Australia. The town boasts a unique mixture of retail experiences with an emphasis on giftware and clothing. Hair and beauty outlets are well represented and you don't have to go far to get a great cup of coffee.
