Welcome to InTarra
InTarra is a centralised database of events and other community 'happenings' taking place in communities in and around the Tarra River Valley of Gippsland, Victoria. Event information is entered by the very people running the event.
Once you enter an event via the InTarra website, it automatically appears on large public electronic noticeboards in our community. Currently there is one in Yarram and one in Port Albert. Other communities are welcome to request one in their town.
It also appears on the InTarra website and Mobile App
The InTarra Community Calendar is not just for big events. It's also for the little things that make our community tick. For example: the release date of a newsletter; the day a shop re-opens after a lockdown; the weekly meeting of a club or crochet group; anything that gives people a reason to look forward to something. That includes 'online events' like a 'learn to use zoom' workshop or an online astronomy night with the local Scouts and cubs.
We also tell many local promoters like community newsletters, newspapers, website runners, and tourism groups about the event. Some may advertise the event for free. Others may contact the organisers for more information or want to write an article about the event. We thank all these promoters for their support and ask everyone to support them in return.
As an added bonus, organisers can use the InTarra Date Planning Tool to help them chose a date for their event so it doesn't 'clash' with other similar events in the area.
If you would like to put events and other community 'happenings' into InTarra, you can sign up by clicking the blue 'log-in or sign up' link. (Note: sign-up is temporarily only available on desktop or laptop devices; not on mobile devices)
