Highways and byways



We support people and communities, particularly those experiencing disadvantage and exclusion in rural Australia. We do this through our annual small grants and longer term programs where we partner with local community organisations to build stronger communities.

OUR Programs

Restoring Nature and Communities

In March 2021 our second partnership program began in North East Tasmania.

Restoring Nature and Communities is a 20 week eco-restoration program in partnership with North East Bioregional Network in St. Helens. The program employs four workers who are undertaking a range of land management and restoration work in the Break O Day municipality.

Our first partnership program Seeds of Connection is thriving in 2021 with community connection programs in Injune, Mitchell, Wallumbilla and Surat during 2021.

OUR Annual Small GRANTS

Building stronger communities

Each year Highways and Byways offers small grants to community organisations to address disadvantage and inequality, especially in rural, regional and remote areas of Australia.

Applications for our 2023 Small Grants program ‘Healing and Growing Together’ have now closed.

Successful applicants will be announced in June 2023.
