 Are you part of a community group looking to host an Australia Day event or activity? Then Rockhampton Regional Council might be able to help.

Council has opened applications for its Australia Day Community Events Grants program for 2021.

The Australia Day Community Events Grants Program is open to community groups and not-for-profit charity organisations within Rockhampton Region.

Rockhampton Regional Council Community Services spokesperson Cr Drew Wickerson said that the fund is designed to help local community groups establish and run events in their own areas to celebrate Australia Day.

"This is a great way for Council to help groups host local events and activities which connect, unite and enable people to celebrate Australia Day in the way that best fits their own communities.

“Whether it’s a family fun day, a sausage sizzle, a concert in a local park or any other way of celebrating our national day, we’d love to hear from you,” he said.
