Nominations for 2024 Good Neighbour Awards are now OPEN!

Shellharbour City Council is proud to be recognised as a “very neighbourly organisation” by the Neighbour Day Organisation.

Shellharbour City Council holds the annual Good Neighbour Awards to recognise and celebrate the community members who reach out, support and help care for the people in their neighbourhoods. 

Nominating someone is the perfect way to say thanks for being a great neighbour as well as going in the draw to win great prizes. We are now accepting nominations for the 2024 Good Neighbour Awards which will be announced in April 2024.  Thanks to very generous donations from our corporate sponsors, the 2023 awards had over $2,000 worth of prizes up for grabs.

Be a good neighbour

Shellharbour’s Good Neighbour Card can help you share your details with your neighbours and list ways that you can help each other and stay connected. We encourage everyone to look out for each other and reach out to your neighbours if you need help or can offer help.

Stay Connected

You can also visit for more information on community services, events and information on how you can stay connected to your community. 

Shellharbour has been celebrating Good Neighbours since 2001. The pandemic has impacted on the way we connect with each other and it is now more important than ever to unite as a community and become good neighbours.

It is important to stay connected to your neighbours, family and community as it helps you feel safer in your home and neighbourhood. If you are feeling isolated or need help, Council can help you with a link to services by contacting us on 4221 6111 or visit
