Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, encouraging people to connect with those who live in their neighbourhood.

Neighbour Day (an initiative of Relationships Australia), is celebrated on the last Sunday in March. It is a day when we’re encouraged to connect with, and celebrate the connections we have with, the people who live in our neighbourhood. Since 2003, Neighbour Day has progressed from a reminder to connect with elderly neighbours to an annual celebration of strong communities and friendly streets.

Neighbour Day brings together like-minded people, resources, and organisations to grow stronger, well connected communities. Social connection makes us feel better as it helps prevent loneliness, isolation and depression.

Neighbour Day is the perfect opportunity to say thanks for being a great neighbour and for being there to lend a hand.

Council is promoting Neighbour Day and encouraging people to connect with their neighbours and nominate good neighbours for a neighbourly award.
