Writing for pleasure to showcase the best Australia has on offer.
Environmentally friendly scavenge hunt in Redfern Park
As a Nation, we celebrate our existence by many festive and community events. Nothing could be more fun than a Scavenge Event at Redfern Park, where everyone is welcome for a few fun-filled hours of trading trash items for cash.

About this event, which is supported by City of Sydney's Festival and Events Sponsorship Grant

** Hours are 9.00am through to 1.00pm
Location Redfern Park in Redfern Street, Redfern (easy to locate)
For every ten pieces of litter, you collect will earn you One Trash Token, which can be used at the pop-up markets or on pre-loved goods.
Great prizes for those Scavengers who go above and beyond with their finds. Bags will be provided by the organisers for your rubbish on the day.
