Good Neighbour Awards

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. 

This year's Good Neighbour Awards were held on 31 March 2023 where winners of each category were announced. 

The categories include Good Neighbour of Year, Good Neighbour of the Year Children’s Choice, Street of the Year and a Kid’s Drawing Competition.  You can read more about our 2023 winners on our Local Heroes page here.

Keep safe in your homes and neighbourhoods

We recommend that you become aware of the public health authorities advice. Visit to stay up-to-date and informed so that you can keep yourselves and your neighbourhood healthy. It is essential that you follow all social distancing measures and only leave your homes when necessary (for food, medical, school, work, care or exercise).

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
