Extreme Drought Conditions in Tamworth and surrounding areas

Tamworth Shire Council in NSW is currently suffering from severe drought. Level 5 water restrictions are in place. As a result until these restrictions are lifted we are unable to wash the exterior of any of our vehicles. Rest assured your vehicle will still be in top mechanical shape! We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause but trust you understand that Thrifty like the rest of the Tamworth community must conserve what little water remains at any cost. 

Please remember that driving in drought conditions can be dangerous so slow down and stay safe during this difficult time.
