The Centenary Rocks! Festival had its final outing in mid 2017, and it now has a worthy successor. If you want to celebrate the "best of the west" this free family-friendly event is promising to be a great day out. 4074 Family Fun Day is on Sunday 9 September from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm at Rocks Riverside Park, Counihan Road, Seventeen Mile Rocks (4073).

2017 was the best year so far with thousands attending the day. 2018 is sure to be bigger and even better. And the weather forecast says sunny. This year's Fun Day is kindly sponsored by the Centenary Vet Surgery. The event is home to the very popular annual "Just Poppy's Burger Eating Championship". Some rides and attractions are free or have a small fee which raises money for local charities, this year being Logan House Fire Support Network and DanDaLion Friends. Experience all the fun of a fair with heaps to see and do and entertainment for the whole family.

What is 4074? 4074 is the postcode for the Centenary Suburbs, a group of suburbs in the south-west of Brisbane. The area was given its name in 1959, Queensland's centenary year that marked its separation from NSW in 1859. Originally the land was all known as Jindalee. The 1967 Australian Scout Jamboree was held in what is now Jamboree Heights. The seven 4074 suburbs are Mount Ommaney, Jindalee, Jamboree Heights, Riverhills, Westlake, Middle Park and Sumner. It is a lovely area with a high degree of community spirit.
