Know your neighbour

Knowing our neighbours turns the place where we live into a home. We can create our own strong communities by getting to know each other, one neighbour at a time.

Why is it important?

Getting to know our neighbours helps us to build better relationships and support each other. We can share resources, like borrowing a ladder or helping each other during severe weather events or other emergencies. We can all welcome new neighbours and look out for each other.

Neighbour Day

Neighbour Day is an annual event. This year it will be celebrated on Sunday 27 March 2022 and promotes the theme ‘Connecting Communities for 20 years’, in celebration of 20 years of Neighbour Day.

During these uncertain times, looking out for each other is more important than ever as we find our way through the coronavirus pandemic. Moreton Bay residents are encouraged to check in with those closest to them - their neighbours!

You can:

Send a message of support or thanks to a neighbour, phone them for a friendly chat or ask for help if you need it. You can be an active part of your neighbourhood, not just on Neighbour Day, but throughout the year.
