National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To foster positive race relations, our relationship must be grounded in a foundation of truth.
Join Adjunct Professor Barry Golding and Dja Dja Wurrung Elder Uncle Ricky Nelson for this one day bus tour.
This tour invites you to experience a range of important sites in the Dja Dja Wurrung landscape where there is evidence of contact from the late 1830s between the peoples of the Dja Dja Wurrung Aboriginal Nation and the invading pastoralists, including John Hepburn, after whom the Shire is named.
Wear clothing and footwear suitable for the predicted weather and for walking up to 500m away from the bus across paddocks. Bring your own lunch and morning/afternoon tea.
Numbers are limited so please register online to book your place. For all enquiries please contact Rachel Palmer – firstname.lastname@example.org
