Hand of friendship

In a show of solidarity, the City of Tea Tree Gully signed a Sister City agreement this year with Borodyanka, Ukraine.

The partnership aims to promote cultural exchange and mutual support for the people of this Ukrainian town, who are enduring the devastating impact of Russian conflict.

A visit in July this year from the Ambassador of Ukraine to Australia and New Zealand, Vasyl Myroshnychenko, has further strengthened our connection.

As someone of Ukrainian heritage, I’m grateful for the relationship we are building together.
