Wallaroo - Clean Up Australia

Residents of Wallaroo are invited to join others in the community to clean up the roadsides including Wallaroo Road, Gooromon Ponds Road, Southwell Road, Brooklands Road, Woodgrove Close, Oakey Creek Road, Coulton Road, Rochford Road, River Bend Road, McCarthy Road, Hawthorne Road, Captains Hill Road and Woodburn Lane. Come and clean the road that you live on or come and join others to clean up all of Wallaroo!

Clean Up Australia inspires and empowers communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment. What was started thirty years ago, by an "average Australian bloke" who had a simple idea to make a difference in his own backyard has now become the nation's largest community-based environmental event. Of course, Australia's waste challenges can't be solved in just one day, so over the past three decades, Clean Up Australia has evolved into an organisation that works with community, government and businesses to provide practical solutions to help us all live more sustainably every day of the year.

National Sheep Dog Trials Championships

Sheep Dog Trials are a highly-competitive and challenging sport. Sheep Dog Trials represent a fascinating insight into Australia's rural life with a compelling spectator experience. Sheep Dog Trials are an example of extraordinary team work between dog and handler.

The objectives of the National Sheep Dog Trials are to:
- Promote the welfare of sheep, dogs and humans (and in that order)
- Promote wide human interest in all classes of sheep dogs and to secure proper appreciation and recognition of their place and use in human society and industry; and
- Promote, in every way, the general improvement of the standard, breeding, working and exhibition of sheep dogs.

The Duke of Gloucester Sash was presented to the National Sheep Dog Trial Association in 1945 by His Royal Highness, Prince Henry Duke of Gloucester during his tenure as Governor General of Australia from 1944 to 1947. The Duke was the younger brother of King George 6th and Uncle of Queen Elizabeth 2nd.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh attended the National Sheep Dog Trial Championships on Finals day, Saturday 26 April 1970 and witnessed the Finals competition. The Queen then presented the Sash to the winner of the National Open Trial, Mr. Bob Ross and his dog Yulong Russ.

Every day of the National Sheep Dog Trials is open to spectators.

Autumn Brass Band Concert in Hall Village

Following the tremendous success of Brass on the Grass last November, there will be an Autumn Brass Band Concert on 28 March.

We are delighted to again be hosting the (thirteenth) annual Brass Band Concert with the Canberra Brass - once know as the Hall Village Brass Band.

COVID safety is still a top priority. The Concert is free, but will be an all-ticketed event with bookings to be made at This will enable us to collect contact details and remain COVID compliant.

In 1984 four musicians got together at the Hall Village primary school to play some brass music. From those humble beginnings came the Hall Village Brass Band. Over the years the band grew both in numbers and stature within the national brass band community, winning the National Band Championships B Grade Brass category in 2002. The band and its successors have become an important part of the cultural community of the ACT and regularly provide music support for a wide variety of functions and occasions. In 2012 the organisation changed its name to Canberra Brass Inc., which now comprises three brass bands, Canberra Brass, which is highly competitive at the national B grade level; Victoria Street Brass, which provides playing opportunities for musicians with a wide range of skills and experience; and the newly formed and very dynamic Canberra Youth Brass.

Our faithful sponsors of the Brass on the Grass concert, Barnett Lilley and Associates, are again coming to the party, and evergreen presenter David Kilby will again do the honours as MC. Refreshments will be available, and the event will again be a major fund-raiser for the museum.

Put 4.30 pm 29th November into your diary now, and look forward to chilling out to a fine brass band concert in the big outdoors!
