Surrey Hills Music Festival

The Music Festival has been bringing live music to the neighbourhood for over a decade! For more info or if you’d like to volunteer at the festival, send an email to:

Fresh Perspectives

Photography exhibition at Warrandyte

Doncaster Camera Club members have images on  display at an outdoor exhibition at Taffys Hut Lions  Park near the playground next to the river in  Warrandyte.

This will run until June 2022 and is well worth a visit.

A New Year’s resolution  many make is to learn new skills, build new friwndshops, investigate new activities.  A perfect place to make sure you don’t lapse is to check out U3A at Hawthorn.  Enrolments are now being accepted for 2022 so go to the website here and follow the instructions.  You will always be made to feel welcome.

U3A Hawthorn is a non-profit organisation with over 1100 members and have a busy program on our campus in Boroondara. We  provide very low cost membership ($50pa) enabling members to take part in some 200+ courses and activities.

Red Balloon Day – 28 February

Show your support to our fireys by purchasing official Thank You Fireys merchandise and displaying them on the 28th of February (the last official day of Summer in Australia), to let our fire fighters know just how much we appreciate their dedication, hard work and tireless efforts in protecting our lives, our homes and our communities throughout the year. Often our fire fighters, both professional and volunteer, leave their family, home or community to help protect ours.

Thank you, Neighbourhood Watch Whitehorse for alerting us to this event.  To find out more, go to
