In recent times the importance of culture and cultural life within communities has received increasing attention. Councils are now considered integral in fostering cultural development within the communities they are responsible for. Of all levels of government, local government is best placed to take the lead in local art/cultural planning and development. Councils have the skills and experience in community consultation and the knowledge of local values and aspirations necessary for effective local cultural planning.

Hunter’s Hill Council has a long history of art and culture. The Hunters Hill Art Exhibition commenced in 1955 and has grown from strength to strength. The exhibition has continued its aim of encouraging involvement in art and sculpture. The works selected demonstrate exceptional quality across a broad range of subject matter, approaches, style and media including painting, drawing, mixed media and sculpture.

Council also hosts a series of cultural events throughout the year, including the Moocooboola Festival, which attracts a crowd of 20,000 to Boronia Park with a vast array of food, stalls, rides and entertainment.

Even though Council’s cultural events are popular with today’s generation, Hunters Hill has a proud multicultural history and more importantly a rich Indigenous culture.
