Wednesday 24 November 2021, 7.00pm at the Bywong Hall, Birriwa Road. Refreshments provided.

The Bywong Community Association organises a number of events each year to bring the community together, including the Car Boot Sale, the Trivia Night and the Christmas Gathering. We also raise funds from the sale of local artwork (postcards and teatowels) and use these funds to benefit the community and to add to our local facilities, such as the amazing playground at the Bywong Hall.

Bywong needs YOU! We are an enthusiastic group, but few in numnber, which limits our potential. So, if you have ideas and energy to to help organise and participate in community activities, we invite you to join us! You can become a Member for free (form below), or can also join the Committee (form also below). If you would like to find out more, please email president@bywongcommunity.org.au , or just come along to the AGM.

Expressions of interest from Artists whom wish to be a part of the QPRC Arts trail.

Bywong Community Assn is looking for any artists whom wish to be a part of the QPRC arts trail but don’t want someone rocking up to their house. 

We have many talented people locally and we thought that the community hall could be opened for those artists who want to share their art only and not where they live!

please message us via Facebook if you are interested.

There may be a small fee (similar to the meet the makers expo) to cover hall hire and insurance costs. You would then be entitled to a table to set up your art/craft etc…

We are considering having a drawing class on offer for any visitors on the arts trail, and potentially could have any music or dance performances as well.

If you are interested please message us to let us know what you would be bringing to the display.
