City of Burnside is bringing Australia's biggest community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail, to the local area this October. Book a sale or shop the trail on Saturday 19 October and/or Sunday 20 October 2019. 

This jam-packed weekend is a great way to declutter, make some money and meet your neighbours. Sellers in 2018 made an average of $309 at their garage sale and made 26 new connections in their community.

Households, schools, community groups and local businesses are invited to host a sale or shop the Trail, joining over 400,000 Australians in this nationwide movement that sees over 3 million kilograms of items reused and saved from landfill. 

For shoppers, Garage Sale Trail is a great opportunity to pick up a bargain and do your bit for the environment by preventing perfectly good items going to landfill. 

Registrations are open. Visit for more information or to register. 

It is FREE to register!
