Calling all crafters!
Join us to knit, crochet, or sew poppies as part of the ''5000 Poppies'' project and to commemorate the ANZAC Centenary in the Town of Bassendean – the coffee’s on us!
A field of more than 100 000 poppies will be planted in Federation Square, Melbourne as a stunning visual tribute to Australian Servicemen and Women to commemorate more than a century of service in all the wars, conflicts and peace keeping operations. Our poppies will be sent to Melbourne to join the field and displayed at the Town’s ANZAC Day service.

Crowds Flock to Fireworks
The Town of Bassendean had a crowd of 18,000 attend this year's Australia Day Celebrations and LatestBuy.com.au Fireworks at Ashfield Reserve.
The crowd enjoyed the summer weather, carnival rides, food trucks and live bands before turning their eyes to the sky for the fireworks finale.
Famous Sharron and our Australia Day Ambassador Akrim Azimi enjoyed interacting with the crowd and there were plenty of ‘selfies’ taken.
Photos from the event can be seen on www.australiadaybassendean.com.au and the Town's Arts & Events facebook & instagram pages. If you took some photos feel free to share them there and hashtag them #ozdaybasso.
