Be part of something bigger, join 400,000 Australians putting secondhand first.


North Burnett Regional Council is part of Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail on Saturday, 19 October and Sunday, 20 October 2019.

North Burnett households, schools and community groups are set to join over 400,000 people across the country taking part in the ninth annual Garage Sale Trail weekend.

A multi award-winning community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail is powered by over 140 local councils nation-wide. It is expected that this year’s weekend long event will involve more Australians than ever before, who will choose to reuse at over 16,000 garage sale events being held across the country.

Mayor Rachel Chambers commented that “Garage Sale Trail presents a fun and social way for the North Burnett to encourage reuse and help educate the community about the impact we can all make when we buy second hand. At the end of the day we need to learn as a society to take responsibility for the waste we create.”

Mayor Rachel Chambers went on to say “Garage Sale Trail provides a way to meet your neighbours and connect with the broader community whilst also decluttering and raising money for yourself or charity. We’re really pleased to be involved in this grass roots national event as reducing waste and bringing community together are priorities for both Council and residents.”

The first 1,250 sellers who register before Tuesday, 10 September will receive a free seller pack from Garage Sale Trail with posters, price tags and more to help you have a winning garage sale.
