Neighbour Day

The Community you want starts at your front door.

Bring your neighbours together

Neighbour Day is Australia's annual celebration of community, bringing together the people next door, or across the street for a drink, a BBQ or just a cuppa. Held on the last Sunday in March every year, it's the perfect day to say thanks for being a great neighbour.

Woollahra Council is encouraging local community groups to host a Neighbour Day celebration on a weekend from 18 March to 8 April.

  4. Break down community barriers.
  5. Protect the elderly, the vulnerable and the disadvantaged.

  • Invite a neighbour to your home for a 'cuppa'
  • Plan a BBQ, picnic, or afternoon tea and invite your neighbours
  • Print invitations or knock on doors to explain your ideas
  • Keep in touch - consider a street Facebook group to share news and needs
