Welcome to the Newtown Residents’ Association!


We have worked actively for many years to make our community a thriving, diverse, great place to live.  We are one of the threads that tie the Newtown area together as a community, not just a suburb.

Join in and be heard!

Association meetings are on the 3rd Monday of every month except December and January, 7.30pm at the Community Hall 71 Daniell Street.  They are open to the public and everyone is welcome. Should voting be necessary on any issue, only the vote of members will be counted. Membership is available to all (16+) residents of Newtown, Mt Cook, Berhampore and anyone who has an interest in Newtown and the southern suburbs.

Membership subscription is a gold coin. If you support what the Association does then it would be great if you could endorse that by becoming a financial member – the subscription is very low because we don’t want cost to be a barrier – we don’t benefit financially, but it can add to our credibility to be able to say we represent ‘x number’ of members.  You can bring your gold coin to a meeting and sign up there – or you could drop it in to Jeanie at Next Stop Earth, 76 Constable St – Jeanie’s shop is open from Wednesday – Saturday.
