Are your cupboards filled with belongings you no longer need, but don’t want to throw out? Register now to join more than 16,000 households nationwide for the biggest garage sale event in the country!

Chair of Council’s Waste Committee Councillor Neil Fisher said that he is excited Rockhampton will be joining the Garage Sale Trail this year on the 19th and 20th of October.

“This is a very fun event that also promotes an important message about the benefits of living more sustainably,” said Cr Fisher.

“Every item that finds a second life in a new home is one less item going to landfill, and a win for everyone involved.

“As well as being a great and sustainable way to declutter, the garage sales are also a good way to make a bit of extra cash.

“Last year, garage sale hosts brought in an average of $309 each. 

“The Garage Sale Trail is supported by Rockhampton Regional Council, along with 139 other councils across the country.

“It is free for households, schools, and community groups in participating areas to register, so head over to the website now to add your sale to the trail!”

The first 1250 sellers who register before 10 September will also receive a free seller pack with posters, price tags, and everything you need to host a winning garage sale.
