Save money, while helping your community raise money.
A growing number of councils are using the weekend of garage sales as an opportunity to support economic recovery post COVID-19.
Third party research shows that for every $1 invested by council, $10 is generated for the local economy through the sale of pre-loved items.
In regional Australia the program is being adopted to boost the number of tourists with the lure of a weekend of buying, selling and exploring.
