2019 Reconciliation Walk

Tuesday, 28 May 2019 | 10:15 AM to 12:00 PM

National-Reconciliation-Week-2019.jpg

We would like to invite members of the community to join together and mark National Reconciliation Week by walking together through Queanbeyan in unity. 

At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year’s theme is “Grounded in Truth, Walk Together with Courage”. The theme emphasises the truthful representation of Australia’s colonial past and the strengthening of respectful relationships as we move forward into the future.

Our youth will proudly represent their school and community on this important day.

Expect a sea of colour as students from all of our local schools proudly represent their school and community on this important day. In previous years over 1,000 people have participated in the walk. This year numbers are hoped to grow even further with support from Queanbeyan businesses, and parents and grandparents joining their children on the walk.

This year our aim is to provide the community with a cultural experience. All are welcome to this FREE event which will include cultural activities at the end of the walk and the official proceedings.

Date: Tuesday 28 May 2019
Time: 10:15am line up for a 10:30am start
Where: Starting Trinculo Place (Ray Morton Park) walking across Queens Bridge, along Monaro Street and into Queanbeyan Park (Corner of Lowe and Campbell Street). Note this walk is approx. 1km.
