Did you know the City of Cockburn has three sister cities? These relationships celebrate historical links and promote cross-cultural understanding.
In recognition of our sister city relationships the City has commissioned public artworks and special verge treatments along Spearwood Avenue, known as Friendship Way.
Delegations from Cockburn have been pleased to visit our sister cities and in return the City has also played host to sister city visitors. You can read about our trips and see photos via the links on the right. Read More
The City's Friendship Way is located along Spearwood Avenue, from Cockburn Road in North Coogee to Beeliar Drive in Yangebup.
Friendship Way is split into five sections, each commemorating an important connection the City has established - with the traditional owners of the land, with its sister cities and with the principles of global peace. Read More
The City has a number of banner poles on North Lake road and these are regularly changed to reflect banners produced by local artists and community groups.
Every year the City submits a banner to the annual Local government Banners on the Terrace Competition the banner needs to reflect the City of Cockburn and can be created as a group project or by individual artists.
Please contact Cultural Development Coordinator 9411 3444 if you have an interest in participating in either of the above projects.
