See you at...Neighbourhood Events

We know it's been a tough few months. Gatherings have been banned, travel has been limited and we've had to pause catch ups with friends and family. Due to the community's commitment to public health, Hedland was able to flatten the COVID-19 curve. In line with easing restrictions, The Town decided to launch the 'See You At...Neighbourhood Events' series, which gives local residents the opportunity to get used to social gatherings again. 

These small-scale, neighbourhood events will feature music, face painting, family friendly activities, food vendors and more. Attendees are invited to bring along their own toys, activities, chairs and rugs. It's a chance to come together and catch up in a COVIDSafe way. 

These are smoke, alcohol and other drug free, family friendly events.
