Choose to reuse with Garage Sale Trail

By buying or selling at a garage sale and keeping items circulating and in use for longer, you can divert valuable resources from landfill while making or saving money in the process.

You can sell or shop at garage sales online or in your neighbourhood on 20 and 21 November with Garage Sale Trail, Australia’s festival of pre-loved stuff.

Register for free and check out a map of all the sales in your local area at Garage Sale Trail.

Free CPR and first aid for parents

First aid and CPR are important skills for parents of young kids, particularly during summer when in and around the water.

Our Community Development team has collaborated with Sydney Children's Hospital to offer a free CPR and First Aid workshop for parents and carers of children aged 0–5 years. The online session on Monday 22 November from 9.30-11.30am will cover resuscitation techniques as well as what to do in a range of emergency situations.

Booking is essential. Visit Woollahra Events for further details.
