Navarre’s 150th Celebrations

On the weekend of March 26 & 27, 2011, Navarre (Victoria, Australia) will celebrate it’s 150th Birthday with a range of festivities – and we want you there to help us celebrate!

The weekend will be a reunion of all people ever connected to the town of Navarre. Whether you lived there, played sport there, had or have relatives there or you just have other great memories of the town, please join us at the 150th reunion.

Among a range of festivities over the weekend, people can join in a “Basket Tea” & Band on Saturday night, enjoy a community breakfast on Sunday morning, attend a combined church service Sunday morning and see the cutting of the birthday cake on Sunday afternoon.


Saturday 26th March 2011

Registrations for the weekend begin at 2pm Saturday at the Navarre Community Hall. Registration will be followed by an informative presentation on historical and present day times at Navarre.

Later in the day a town ramble walk will be conducted, allowing those involved in the celebrations to tour local points of interest.

Day 1 will conclude with a “Basket Tea” at the Navarre Community Hall, with dancing music provided by the band “Soft”. (A basket tea is where you bring a picnic-type meal for yourselves and something to share)

Sunday 27 March – Day 2

A Community Breakfast kicks off the day at the Navarre Sporting Complex.

Following the breakfast, a combined church service will be held at the Navarre Sporting Complex.

The weekend of celebrations will conclude with the cutting of a 150th birthday cake, a cuppa and a catch up, before guests return home.

To help make the town’s birthday extra special the Navarre Progress Committee is eager to collect as much historical information as they can. They are seeking help to find stories and points of interest concerning the community’s history and would appreciate any information people can offer.
