    WHAT IS SYDNEY PACIFICA: Sydney Pacifica is Australia’s largest cultural festival involving high schools throughout Sydney that have Pacific, NZ Maori, Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, South Sudanese and African students. It aims to reconnect the students to their cultural heritage and learn the importance of traditions, customs and values that have evolved through time and generations to create their identity and who they are today. The goal is to facilitate and teach traditional songs and dance patterns to the students so that they can perform these to a large audience, plus gain appreciation, awareness and acceptance of their culture, through the voices of song, dance and music of our next generation. Sydney Pacifica Cultural Festival is organised by Volunteers from the local community and lacks any commercial, religious or political agenda. Their aim is to spark conversation, connection and community awareness to support all young people with a strong voice.

    Re-Veg the Flume - National Tree Planting Day

    It's on again - our annual pilgrimage to the Flume in Warrnambool to increase biodiversity, build habitat, enjoy the beautiful sea views and, of course, enjoy good company at the free BBQ afterwards. On Sunday July 30th from 10am - 12 noon we'll be planting trees on the high ground to the right of the road, near the Flume car park. Bring your kids, your friends and your neighbours. Wear clothes suitable for the weather and shoes for (potentially) wet grass. If you have a garden trowel or a small spade, bring that too. The planting will be followed by a free BBQ. Basic tree planting instruction will be given before commencing. For further info phone 0431 057 741
