Anzac Day

Anzac Day – a time when we traditionally come together to reflect on the extraordinary sacrifices our countrymen and women have made in times of conflict. Sutherland Shire Council is committed to honouring the many local servicemen and women who have served and continue to serve our nation here and abroad.

We invite our community to honor and acknowledge our Australian servicemen and women and the Anzac spirit by attending services or joining broadcasts of services by our local RSLs or the Australian National War Memorial. Lest We Forget.

Youth Week

Come together and get involved with your community during Youth Week. Share your ideas and views on issues important to you, showcase your talents, plus enjoy a variety of fun events and activities. Sutherland Shire Council in partnership with our local Youth Services and Youth Reference Group are excited to offer the following free events!

Meeting of Two Cultures

One of the most significant moments in Australian history is being acknowledged with the staging of Sutherland Shire Council’s ‘Meeting of Two Cultures’ event, marking the anniversary of the first contact between Europeans and the First Nations peoples of Australia’s east coast.


NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Sutherland Shire each July to celebrate the narrative of our nation and the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NAIDOC Week is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.
