Celebrating NAIDOC Week

Published on Tuesday, 5 July 2022 at 10:09:47 AM

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
This year's theme is GET UP! STAND UP! SHOW UP!
NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.
In the Shire of Dardanup, you can experience the cultural, spiritual and historical significance of the Koorliny Beelya (Collie River Heritage Trail), 2km of pathway in Eaton between the Old Coast Road Bridge and Hands Avenue lookout.
The trail consists of six signs featuring original artwork by Wardandi Balardong artist Tahlia Bennell. The artwork is brought to life by using QR codes to access audio and video stories, as told by Elder Joe Northover.
You can even read more about the signs and watch the video stories from the comfort of home via this page of our website.
