Cumberland City Council are celebrating five years since proclamation, with five free BBQS over five days in the five council wards. This is an important milestone as they’ve come a long way in the past five years to unite two councils and part of a third council into one cohesive organisation. It’s been a lot of work by hundreds of staff, but the dedication, determination and resilience has really shone through and is a credit to our community.

The BBQs start from 17 May and Council invites the community to come out and celebrate in their local neighbourhood, connect with friends and meet new ones.

Cumberland was formed when the former Holroyd and Auburn Councils merged with part of the Parramatta local government area, forming an area of 72km2, with nearly 250,000 people from over 150 nationalities. Our diversity is our key strength – with people from all walks of life calling Cumberland City home.
