Reconciliation Walk in Queanbeyan: The Reconciliation Week Walk in Queanbeyan on Tuesday, June 1 was a great opportunity for residents, young and old to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their significance in our community. The walk from the Queens Bridge and through to the Sunken Gardens in Queanbeyan Park is a way for our community to show our commitment to becoming more inclusive and respectful. There were around 2,000 school children and community members in attendance, and we were fortunate to have Aunty Tina Brown perform a magnificent Welcome to Country and lead a traditional Ngunnawal cultural performance on the day. The speeches reflected on the past and celebrated a future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are treated with respect and equity across Australia.
