NAIDOC Week 2018 celebrates the invaluable contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made – and continue to make - to our communities, our families, our rich history and to our nation.
Under the theme - Because of her, we can! - NAIDOC Week 2018 will be held nationally from Sunday 8 July and continue through to Sunday 15 July.
City of Canning invites you to join their FREE NAIDOC Week Walk on Sunday 8 July 2018 from 9am.
This short walk (3.7 km return) leaves Kent Street Weir Park and follows the stunning Butterflies, Birds and Bridges Loop.
The wheelchair-friendly trail is popular with cyclists, walkers and bird-watchers. It is also dog and pram-friendly.
Along the way, you can learn some basic Noongar words and phrases, and enjoy an area rich with history and nature.
Following the walk, a bush tucker feast will be served, think wattle seed and chocolate muffins, smoked crocodile rice paper rolls and seared kangaroo on grilled damper with onion jam!
There will also be outdoor heaters and free hot tea and coffee to keep you warm.
Come along with the whole family and pay tribute to the extraordinary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who have - and continue - to play significant roles at a community, local, state and national level.
All are welcome to join the FREE NAIDOC Week Walk.
For catering purposes, please register your attendance by Monday 25 June 2018.
