Mirrabooka NAIDOC week

Mirrabooka Celebrating NAIDOC

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This years theme “Heal Country”calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions in July, NAIDOC celebrations have been postponed to November 2021. More details will be released closer to the event date.

This event is presented by the Mirrabooka NAIDOC Committee and proudly supported by the City of Stirling.

Sunset Veranda win

Sunset Veranda goes out on a high!

The City's independent FRINGE WORLD pop-up venue at Scarborough Beach - Sunset Veranda, was our best and most diverse yet, with over 16,500 attendees, 100 individual events and 30 sold out shows across 20 days. Community support, record breaking attendance numbers and sold out shows contributed to the events multi-award winning season! Sunset Veranda 2020 was awarded the FRINGE WORLD 2020 Independent Program Award and the Park and Leisure Australia (WA) Major Event of the Year 2020.

Due to the impact of COVID-19 on local communities and the events industry, the City has repositioned its events portfolio to provide increased community and business support. The new events season will include a series of events spread across the City, specifically for local residents. Due to the need for the City to deliver increased localised support, Sunset Veranda and WAAPA in the Park will not be delivered in 2021. The City will continue to support and cultivate these partnerships in other ways. Thank you for your support of Sunset Veranda and WAAPA in the Park over the years. We hope to see you at your local neighbourhood event in the coming months.
