Members from the AEVA NSW Branch will have an EV display at the Lake Macquarie Council Living Smart Festival.

Held on the traditional lands of the Awabakal People, the Living Smart Festival is one of Australia’s largest community sustainability events, with a mission to encourage people to learn about and embrace everyday sustainability practices.

Located on the shores of Lake Macquarie at Speers Point Park, this family friendly event features a jam-packed program highlighting sustainability topics such as permaculture, natural ecosystems, upcycling, circular economy, sustainable eating, electric vehicles, First Nations learnings and much more.

This year’s Living Smart Festival brings a huge line-up of sustainability workshops, demonstrations, and speakers, featuring some of Australia’s most prominent and innovative personalities in the field of sustainability, including Logie Award-winning presenter, comedian and waste warrior, Craig Reucassel.

The event will also showcase sustainable market stalls, local community organisations, live music, roving performers and free kids’ activities.

The NSW Branch will be doing an EV display at the final NRMA Drive Day for 2023 in Armidale at the Armidale Traffic Education Centre.

Supported by the NSW Government, we’re hosting a series of elective vehicle (EV) drive days where you can find out everything you need to know about owning and driving an EV.

You’ll have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of an EV for a test drive and talk to experts about buying and charging EVs. You can also check out a range of vehicle models and find out about chargers currently available in Australia.

Our EV drive days are free to attend and open to all, so bring your friends and family along. Even if you’re not up for a test drive, there’ll be food available to purchase, Member giveaways, information stalls, and EV experts (including AEVA) on hand to answer all your questions.


To book a test drive, visit the NRMA Drive Days Armidale website and make a booking.


If you'd like to attend and assist with the display, please contact the NSW branch secretary here.
