Wellington Shire Council has grants available for community groups organising Australia Day Events.
Community groups wishing to conduct a ceremony to celebrate Australia Day can apply for funding. The level of support provided will depend on the capacity of the event to deliver outcomes that are beneficial to the Wellington Community, and reflect the purpose of Australia Day.
Grant funding is available for Australia Day celebrations that reflect contemporary Australia: our diverse society and landscape, our remarkable achievements and our bright future. Events also provide an opportunity to reflect on our nation's history, and to consider how we can make Australia an even better place in the future.
The grant period is now CLOSED and will reopen on 1 October 2021.
For a full list of our 2021 Australia Day Celebrations to be held on Tuesday 26 January, please see our Event Calendar.
Assisted by the Australian Government through the National Australia Day Council.
