Tell Us Your Story

The key aim of Neighbour Day is to encourage people to connect with those that live close to them and to create communities where people look out for each other.

Each year, the Neighbour Day Tell Us Your Story competition invites people to share their stories about a great neighbour, an amazing neighbourly act, or something they appreciate about the people in their neighbourhood. This year, we encourage you to share stories in the spirit of our annual theme: The importance of a supportive neighbourhood for children and young people.

The 2018 theme encourages all Australians to support safe and welcoming communities for the families with children and young people in their neighbourhoods. Check out the competition rules here.
