Our Sister City Gaiarine
The City of Botany Bay is proud of its sister city relationship with the Comune di Gaiarine or the City of Gaiarine. Gaiarine is a municipality of Italy and is an agricultural community located in the region of Veneto, near the regional capital of Venice in the nation’s north-east corner.
In 1982, a delegation from Italy visited the City of Botany Bay to mark the 100th Anniversary of the arrival of the first migrants from Gaiarine. In honour of this occasion and to pay tribute to our local Italian-Australian community and our close cultural ties with Italy, the City of Botany Bay and the City of Gaiarine established a sister-city relationship.
The Sister-City Relationship between Gaiarine and the City of Botany Bay is commemorated with the Gaiarine Gardens on Ocean Street, Pagewood.
