Do you have a great idea to celebrate Australia Day 2020?

 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 its Australia Day Community Events Grants program for 2020.

Chair of Rockhampton Regional Council’s Community Services Committee Cr Rose Swadling said the grants helped local community groups unite and connect with others within their own area while celebrating our national day.

"The Australia Day Community Events Grants program encourages groups to host local events and activities which connect, unite and enable people to celebrate Australia Day in the way that best fits their own communities,” she said.

“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,” she said.

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