This began as a Bushcare Volunteer amateur photographic competition in 2008 to encourage Bushcare participation and interest in our local natural environment. Also Streets Alive and Harbourcare volunteers where invited to participate in 2012 and 2014. 

The competition entries have proven to be a very helpful resource. These images are stored in a photographic library for the promotion of the volunteer programs as well as providing engaging content for the Bushcare Newsletter and Calendar.

Home for Christmas

4 December 2015 - 28 January 2016

A neighbourhood is a close community of people and their homes..... and each has a different story to tell.  The home is a place where we can be ourselves, gather with friends and family and feel safe and comfortable in our surrounds.  It is also a special place for creative expression where we can make a house our home.

This photographic exhibition documented the final artworks created as part of the Home for Christmas project, focussing on the unique, small and individual details of the larger outdoor installation in Civic Park.
