Come along and enjoy ‘Summer at Sussex’  with a great range of food, fun and music events over the summer.

This event strategy was designed by the Chamber of Commerce to support the communities of Sussex Inlet, Berrara and Cudmirrah to recover after the bush fires and many weeks of lockdown and has now become an annual event.

‘Summer at Sussex’ will launch Mid December 2023 and continue to the 26th January 2024 and will provide much needed community engagement, create a positive environment, offer some innovative activities for locals and visiting tourists and also support our local hospitality businesses and musicians.

Pick up a Sussex Inlet Visitors Guide at the Neighbourhood Centre, Cafés, accommodation or from the tourism kiosk near the community church or download from
