This year's event is to be held on Friday 19 May 2017 and schools around Australia will be holding events to support this initiative. Check with your local school to see what events they are holding however you can also get involved by parking a little further away from school if you need to use your car to get there and walking the rest of the way. Take the opportunity to admire the beautiful colours of autumn, and learn a little about the neighbourhood as you wander.
