Pinjarra Festival

We wanted you to know that, following the easing of some COVID-related restrictions, The Shire of Murray’s biggest public event of the year, the LiveLighter Pinjarra Festival WILL take place this year. Barring any significant changes in the public health advice, we’ll be back in the beautiful grounds of the iconic Edenvale Heritage Precinct and its surrounds, on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June which is the Western Australia Day long weekend. We’ll have a full stack of music, more than 100 market stalls, free kids’ activities, displays, workshops, amusements and more.  We’ve got much less time to organise it than in previous years because of the impacts of COVID-19, but the team are working flat out to bring the event to life, and we’ll keep this page updated as more details become available.  For now though, mark your diaries; the LiveLighter Pinjarra Festival is BACK and we can’t wait to see you in June.

Ten cents from every container will gratefully go towards the WA Gould League, raising funds for our non-for-profit organisation and its educational programs. As an added incentive, donors go into a draw to win a special prize!
  • Jake Bamford, of Dapper Cranium Studios, will be hosting a gameplay session of ‘Bin-Off’, his exciting new recycling card game that teaches kids how to properly sort rubbish.

There will also be some fun recycled projects and crafts to make, hands-on aquatic scooping, guided nature walks, interactive exhibits and our resident animals, the book/gift shop (with a new line of enviro cleaning products!) and of course yummy bakery treats and barista-made beverages from our coffee window Twitchers.   What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!   Bookings are essential. Entry is $10 per person, $30 per family or FREE for Friends of the WA Gould League.   Please note a COVID event plan will be in place – physical distancing, sanitization measures, proof of vaccination, contact registers and increased indoor ventilation will be in place, with the majority of the event held outdoors in open space.   Can’t wait to see you there!

Rising Lotus

Featured at the first ever Coogee Live ‘Rising Lotus’ by Tom Muller is a captivating light and sculptural art installation at Omeo Park, North Coogee. This was a crowd favourite in the inaugural Coogee live so don’t miss your chance to revisit this ephemeral piece again! Tom Muller discusses how Rising Lotus is about the dichotomy of East and West and how we integrate them, “The works are also to do with the polarity of ideas, like travel and escape. All the objects take you to a place, some way or other. We look to the East for internal peace which is contrasted with the West’s ambitiousness.”
