We want to hear from you so together the Oxley community can pave the way for Songbird’s living harmony. There are many opportunities to get involved. Complete the activities below to take part.

How you can get involved:

  • Do you have a story, memory or an interesting fact about Songbird Oxley? Share your story of Songbird Oxley
  • Songbird Oxley has many outstanding characteristics, from natural bushland to proud community spirit; these characteristics have been reflected in four community pillars.
  • Bushland protection and enhancement is a defining hallmark of Songbird that will help us create programs that enhance Songbirds net zero commitment.

First Nation Partnerships:

We are actively working to get to know the First Nations stories and connections to the area. We are exploring ways we can partner with First Nations people to share and celebrate their stories throughout the public spaces and within activities delivered at Songbird. If you would like to get involved in this process please get in touch via email at hello@fourfoldstudio.com.au

Next step:

There is plenty of space to kick about at Songbird Oxley, with an open recreation park and a pocket park soon to be available for the community to enjoy. These open green spaces need names. The next step in developing the Place Program will be to share the Songbird Oxley stories we have heard and for the community to put forward naming suggestions.

  • Thank you to the interested parties who helped us create programs that enhance Songbird’s net zero commitment.
