Connection postcard

We have developed a connection postcard to help you connect with your neighbours. There is space on the back for you to write a note, introduce yourself, or leave a lovely message to your neighbour and pop it in their letterbox. 

Connection postcards are available for collection at our Customer Service Centres and Libraries. You can also download a one-sided version of the postcard (PDF 100 KB)

If you would like to collect a large number of postcards or if you need any more information, please call our Community Development team on (07) 3412 3412 or email

6 tips for connecting with your neighbours

  1. Get to know your neighbours
    If you can’t name more than a neighbour or two, it’s time you introduce yourself. Even if you’ve lived in your home for a while, this first introduction doesn’t need to be awkward. Simply smile and say, “Hey, I’ve been meaning to introduce myself…”

  2. Drop a note in your neighbours’ letterbox
    It’s a great way to invite them for a cup tea or just to give them your phone number, in case of an emergency. A simple note can open the door to a stronger, more connected neighbourhood. Feel free to use our Connection postcard as a template for your note.

  3. Create (or join) a Neighbourhood Facebook group
    Social media is an increasingly popular way for neighbourhoods to interact. You could create a group or join one that already exists in your street or suburb. These groups can be really useful for helping re-connect with lost pets, sourcing recommendations for local labour or promoting local events or activities.

  4. Join (or build) a community or backyard garden.
    Community gardens are places that bring community members together to grow fresh fruit and vegetables. Check out our Community gardens webpage for a list of existing community gardens and find out how to create your own.

  5. Welcome new neighbours!
    You can bring some baked goods, deliver a stack of your favourite local take-away menus wrapped in a ribbon, or simply introduce yourself and see what you share in common. If you are a bit uncomfortable or awkward introducing yourself, but still wish to let your new neighbour know that they’re welcome, you could also leave a note in their mailbox. Use our Connection postcard as a template for your note.

  6. Celebrate Neighbour Day on the last Sunday of March
    Neighbour Day is Australia’s annual celebration of community, encouraging people to connect with those who live in their neighbourhood. Whether through a cuppa, a picnic in the park, or a message of support; Neighbour Day is the perfect opportunity to say thanks for being a great neighbour and for being there to lend a hand. Check out the Neighbour Day website for upcoming Neighbour Day events, competitions, and resources.
