Sebastopol - Busy busy at BNC for The Burra

Spotlight on Sebastopol is a $5 Million investment by the State Government into our suburb, delivering widespread upgrades to the place we call home: better greenspaces, improved streetscapes, and new community facilities to name a few.

Because BNC connects directly with the Sebastopol Community, we are leading several Spotlight on Sebastopol initiatives.  Projects which give you a chance to be involved in our the future of the 'Burra'.


Connecting Sebastopol

The Sebastopol Community Newsletter is the centre piece of the Connecting Sebastopol project.

There is also a Community Association to advocate for our suburb, tell our local stories, and build a brand new online hub to promote all things local.  It's an exciting time for The Burra, and your voice has never been more important.  

If you have questions or feedback, would like to submit content for the newsletter, want to ensure your business is featured in the online directory, want to tell a great yarn about your local experience, or you're passionate about advocacy and would like to be part of the Community Association, GET IN TOUCH! Contact the Community Development team at
