Neighbour Day

Neighbour Day is an annual celebration of community on the last Sunday of March.

The theme for the 2021 Neighbour Day is ‘every day is neighbour day’.

Bundaberg Regional Council wants to know who has the best neighbour or street or neighbourhood.

Bundaberg Regional Council wants to encourage the community to actively build strong connections with the people around them and to realise the social, emotional and mental benefits of connecting with others and joining and taking part in social groups.

All Australians are urged to reach out to the vulnerable and lonely members of their community, because it can truly make a difference to the lives of those who may be struggling with isolation or loneliness.

Neighbour Day is the perfect day to say thanks to the wonderful people in our neighbourhood, connect with new neighbours, and feel part of your community.

Tell us about your best neighbour or neighbourhood and you could win a BBQ essentials pack valued at $200 for your neighbour!

Do you have that friendly neighbour or are part of a neighbourhood that usually do good deeds for the community and goes out of their way to help you or others?
