Due to rising COVID case numbers, Whitehorse City Council has made the decision to cancel the 2022 Australia Day Concert.
“The health and safety of our community is our highest priority,” said a Council representative.
“We want our community to be safe when attending council events and facilities and our staff to be safe when delivering these activities and events for our community.
“The 2022 Whitehorse Civic Awards, which were to be held as part of the Australia Day concert, will be converted to an online event and award recipients will be notified directly of new arrangements.
“We are disappointed the event has been cancelled, however we hope upcoming festival season events will proceed,” the Council statement said.
