Ramadan Nights Lakemba

The holy month of Ramadan is underway, and we’re celebrating each night with Ramadan Nights Lakemba. The month-long event is the ideal place for your family and friends to experience foods from all around the world. Nightly until 1 May 2022 (dependant on the moon).

As winter approaches, it is a great time to plant new ideas. Our Bushcare volunteers recommend essential maintenance and pruning where you can.
