  1. Attend Melbourne’s local events.

Ready to take your neighbourhood experience to the next level? Be sure to check out Melbourne’s events and participate to the event of your interest.

This also increases camaraderie among neighbours and will inspire you to work together to improve their community. If you feel like throwing a barbecue party, feel free to invite your neighbours through Housenet. All you need to do is to post the details of your event in the community page. Start off by clicking ‘Create New Event’ and put the details of your event. For a complete guide on how to promote or create an event, click here.
