Noosa Council’s Neighbour Day event, postponed due to wet weather earlier this year, will now take place in June.

Neighbour Day BBQ will be hosted by Kin Kin Community House.

Cheryl Pattison, Community Development Coordinator said Council was pleased to be able to host the event.

“Neighbour Day is back on after being washed out in March this year. We are really looking forward to bringing the local community together.” 

The event – a Neighbour Day BBQ, hosted by Kin Kin Community House - will take place on Wednesday, June 19, from 4pm to 6pm.

Along with the free sausage sizzle BBQ, the event offers live music, an ice cream van, disaster resilience information, and enjoyable activities for children.

The BBQ is open for everyone within the local neighbourhood, and is free to attend.

Neighbour Day aims to foster community connections and enhance disaster resilience.

Council’s Community Recovery and Resilience team is excited to meet locals on the day, adding that this Council initiative is one of many community engagement activities planned for 2024.

“We believe that a connected and resilient community starts with us. As a region we have been through a lot, but the Noosa region is famous for its inclusive and neighbourly attitude. We’re here to build on that for the future,” Ms. Pattison said.

This initiative is made possible through joint funding from the Australian and Queensland Governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
