Residents can choose their own planet-saving adventure when the Garage Sale Trail, Australia’s festival of pre-loved stuff, returns to Cowra Shire this Spring.

Garage Sale Trail 2022 will take place over four weekends from 29 October to 20 November. Made locally possible by the NSW EPA and Cowra Council, the festival encourages residents to hold garage sales – either your own or with a group – and take part in online tutorials with high profile experts to sell, shop and learn about the circular economy.

Registration is free at

Between 29 October and 5 November, the Cowra Shire community can be part of the Trail Tutorials, a series of inspiring and educational talks all about sustainable fashion and renovations. Featuring Barry Du Bois, Annabel Crabb and Craig Reucassel—alongside experts in fashion, home renovations and the circular economy—the sessions are hosted online and free to attend.

Then, over two weekends of garage sales hosted simultaneously around the nation, declutter and sell pre-loved goods or shop the trail and snag a guilt-free bargain locally on 12-13 and 19-20 November.

10,000 garage sales are expected over the two sale weekends nationally. A likely 300,000 Australians will participate as sellers and shoppers. Two million items projected to be listed nationally.

Garage Sale Trail is made possible thanks to the NSW EPA and 100 local governments around Australia.
