"Through My Eyes


The Guringai Festival was first started in 2001 with the aim of commemorating and raising awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in the Northern Sydney region. The festival begins on Sorry Day, celebrated on 26 May and finishes at the end of NAIDOC week, the second week of July every year.

This year the festival showcases the "Through My Eyes" theme, inviting young people in the region to add their input on sustainability for the current and future generations.
