Last year's Australia Day celebrations attracted more than 15,000 attendees.
Granville Railway Disaster Memorial
A special memorial service was held on Thursday 18 January to recognise 41 years since the Granville Railway Disaster; the worst railway disaster in Australian history.
The annual memorial service is an opportunity to remember the 84 people killed and publicly honour those who risked their own lives to help.
Cumberland Council is committed to ensuring that the memory of this day lives on and recently approved a grant of $10,000 for the memorial event in 2019 as part of the Cumberland Community Grants Program.
Construction has started on Merrylands Commuter Car Park, which will be closed for 10 months from 22 January 2018, while additional levels are constructed. You can find out more about this Transport for NSW project
