Rates & Utilities

Residential property owners receive rate notices twice a year, usually in February and August. The rates notice includes both general rates and utilities charges (water, sewerage and rubbish collection).

The notice issued in February covers half yearly rates and charges for January 1 to June 30 and the notice issued in August covers half yearly rates and charges for July 1 to December 31.

A 10% discount applies to the general rate component of the rate notice if paid by the due date.

Your rates, made easier

You can pay now or later, in person or online, in installments or with a little extra help.

Did you know you can pay your rates throughout the year? You can make weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments via BPAY. Divide your yearly amount into smaller, more manageable amounts to make payment easier. Just use your BPAY biller code and reference number to make your payment.
