Sorry Day : 26th May

Since 2017– our connection began with the Wolkara Elders, we began to develop a Sorry day event that recognizes the history of First Nations people. This is the day we gather around the park with our Elders and embrace them as the leaders and recognize what they have been through. We usually have 40-50 in attendance.

NAIDOC: First Sunday In July – Following Sunday

Since 2017- NAIDOC is the time we celebrate our First Nations people. Our NAIDOC Event that we had in 2022 was our first inclusive event that included non- indigenous stalls. As the day is usually set for First Nations service providers and stalls we decided that we would use the event to promote inclusiveness as a way to bridge the gap and create opportunity for non- indigenous people to learn and engage with our Wolkara Elders and the First Nations community at large. We have approx. 150 in attendance at this event.
